Suddenly I stop
but i know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
all alone

Inspiration: Katharina Poblotzki

It wasn't about the Sofia Coppola photo, but I'll admit it did sway me at first. I saw on my twitter feed Jenny Mortsell tweeted about her photographic friends and I said "this has to be good." If you haven't seen Jenny's illustrations you just have to know that whoever she recommends has to be great! But Jenny is another post for later because she is just... I can't even go into words with her originality...But on with Katharina --her work stands out, if I was some photo editor or anything of high power I would seek her out of Berlin and have her shoot a whole issue of my magazine because she is that epic. And I think she's shooting film with a simple 35mm also known as the Yaschia T4, but that's my assumption but a good one :-). But I won't ramble at her greatness or tools --just go look at her portfolio.

Tortured Artist One: Francesca Woodman

"......things had been bad, there had been therapy, things had gotten better, guard had been let down."

An American photographer who moved to New York City to "make it.."  In spite of her great creativity and originality, she was ignored after sending her portfolios to several agencies ...Slowly but surely she slipped into depression and jumped out a window. She was 22.

Muse #1 : Alison Mosshart

She's a certified bad ass that isn't in just one band but two, The Dead Weather and The Kills. Alison is my hero. Its nice to see a lady and yes I said LADY, not give a genuine f*k... Did I mention she looks good doing it? If I could photograph her I could live life happy for all time. And I don't mean lets go to a studio with lights and be fake.. No, I mean let me show up to your tourbus or backstage and shoot you right there..with a camera with no concept or thought... just going with it.
