spensierato

I flat-out LOVE this photograph. Hands down. No questions asked.

It’s an image of fashion designer Natalia Hoyo done by Duck Duck Collective, a group whose fan[king]dom I’ve recently sidled on into, thanks to Ciara 🙂 I love the ‘unposed’ but still editorial style…and the versatility of the images, though they remain linked by a common thread of really perceptive portraiture. When you get to Dustin Kensure of Thrice in the Photography flip book, you swoon at the soft lighting, muted quality, and blurred dust flecks rather than call them out; they are the cotton-candy confection of cigarette smoke, strobe haze, and 60-watt bulb glow that spin this cozy, intimate lounge into being. They simply are the dim, cramped basement stage on which he’s likely strumming out an acoustic set, and you can all but feel the jazz seeping out from his harmonica.

As for the post title, I’m following Matt’s advice on naming everything in Italian for extra effect 😛

Hint: It describes the first picture perfectly. 🙂

Hint Hint: Google Translate. 😛

    wtf. miel. shut up. seriously.
    sorry. what i actually mean is,
    you know that age-old saying about pictures being worth a thousand words? i seriously argue that your words are worth much more, say…10 words per picture in this post…what i mean is, sure, you words could never be as vivid and visually delectable as these incredibly stunning (are these in anyway edited?!?) pictures…but your words are certainly just as illustrative/emotionally powerful, if not more so. there’s a depth, a richness, a catharsis in the suspense of your words in the dark recesses of the reader’s imagination that could never be captured by the click of the lens. in your words, more or less, you can all but feel your passion seeping from your words =).
