Norway

Finally, my bike is fixed. Not fixed as in single speed, but the derailleur is on the right place, not between the spokes. The chain is straight instead of a weird kind of twisted like a washed denim and it looks like I can hit the road again. Time to… [ Continue reading ]

Vedi Napoli e poi muori

At the end of 2010 Dutch graphic designer Jeroen Pruijt moved to Naples. He started a photographic journal, sharing his love for this city thru his analog pictures taken with an old Rollei 35.
In his words, '...Naples could be considered as chaotic, with cars and motorbikes racing around the city not paying attention to traffic lights. She could also be seen as corrupt or dangerous by some, but one thing that Naples could never be considered, is boring. Yes there is a dark side, but the bright side is overwhelming. In Naples the 'good' and 'bad' contrast each other to such an extreme, it's breathtaking.' A contrast that reflects in his beautiful images. [ Continue reading ]

Marcus Palmqvist

I wrote about Marcus Palmqvist before but stumbled upon his work again and just need to share it.

Love it! [ Continue reading ]

Enjoy this video and a little interview we did - after the click. And more at Manja Otten x Cake. [ Continue reading ]
