This album combines modern architecture, urban/street style and film photography. As far as our generation is concerned, fashion is all about mixing the old with the new! I absolutely love the grainy look of film photos, especially in the shadowy areas of each shot. The colors also turned out great – notice my new hair?
I`d like to thank Ryu for really doing his homework before this shoot. No time was wasted, as he knew exactly where in that massive building we should go to snap our shots. The great thing about photography is that you can progress in your work wherever you go. Every room, structure and light source can inspire an idea for a shot. Ryu keeps his eyes peeled as he wanders the city every single day. I would say that I’m the same way when it comes to style. Whether I know you or not, I’m observing what you’re wearing and taking notes in my head (fear not, I mean no harm). I tell myself what I shouldn’t wear and what I should experiment with. I don’t like to have only one style – I like to be whoever I want to be. I was wearing this first outfit in a McDonald’s and noticed two strangers observing me, much like I observe others. They probably thought I always dressed like this. Probably put me into a certain category. What they don’t know is that one day I’m a street kid and the next I’m head-to-toe Chanel…JK. I can’t afford Chanel, but if I could, I would be too good with my money to buy it.
I would like to wish everyone who follows the lunar calendar a happy new year! Drink lots of tea and get lots of red envelopes.
