These days, I've been taking lots of portraits. Most of the time, it would be the first time that I meet up with her/him. We talk, share stories, have some good laughs in order to get to know each other before I start taking photographs.

And when I photograph, there is always a song or a conversation from friends / movies inside my head. Repeating on its own again and again.

Here is recent portrait that I did - Mary Sweet.

A Song from Beach House Myth.

I went silence for the past 14 days. Basically I got myself into a bike accident then I ended up at the hospital, stitched. It wasn’t nice but I felt alright.

Thank you so much for the Danes, for all your help and kindness. It means so much to me!

Also all the creatives I met in Copenhagen – Polly Bosworth , Mary Sweet & Pasteelo!

Thanks Millions, Copenhagen!!!
In the meanwhile, I am working on the mixtape 02!

Now it's one o'clock in the morning. Counting the days, I've been in Berlin for 15 days! It has been a real good journey!

Thank you so much Tracy Gray from THE/ GIRL/ OF/ STUFF// connecting me to the people in Berlin. Also people from Blam Studio & Place Skateboard Culture ! It has been a real pleasure of meeting all of you guys, sharing your ideas and stories with me. THANK YOU!

For some reasons, Berlin has brought me back to Film. Now I start to shoot film more than digital. I developed 3 rolls of films in here at Fotokotti Reasonable Price, Great Turnouts, Nice people there! You can give it a go if you happen in Berlin!

One more thing is worth mentioning : Helmut Newton Musuem. "To look steadily, intently, and with fixed attention."



shooted this on Film

A BIG WHAT | A BIG WHY | MOMENT

Sunday is a resting day for me. I normally go to exhibitions / musuems to get inspired. It's always good to be away from the computer, mind off from this project, then I have time to think through things.

Today I went to Stedelijk Museum To see "Zero: Let Us Explore the Stars" exhibition, also their premanent collections of modern and contemporary art and design, with 90,000 objects dating from 1870 to now. The most I wanted to see out of 90,000 objects, is the Red and Blue Chair by Gerrit Rietveld.

For those whose know me for a real long time, knowing that I'm obessed with chairs, really obsessed, I almost remember all the chairs from 1950s onwards. I even did a elective course - Furniture Design when I was in uni...

Anyhow, today I finally saw Red and Blue Chair by Gerrit Rietveld. I was so hyped at first but it also came to A BIG WHAT | A BIG WHY | MOMENT ... A BIG WHAT - Chair is caged... A BIG WHY - ain't no space to breath at all... WHY EMOJI ICON...

A day to remember , first time to think about Skate.Create.Unknown. The references I went back that was the course reading at School of Art, looking through the art history & theory : theories, legacies, subversions & etc ... Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Helmet Newton, Robert Mapplethrope...
