You'll be feeling fine.





El invierno está llegando a su fin, y en mí se debaten sentimientos contradictorios de alegría y pena. No me entiendo, intento hacerlo, pero al rato me rindo y me vuelvo a sentar en ese banco roído y sucio de la incertidumbre.
Han sido unos meses intensos, en muchos sentidos, y lo que quiero ahora es mirar hacia el futuro y disfrutar del viaje.


Winter is coming to an end, and that makes me feel both happy and sad. It's been some intense months, in many ways, and what I want now is looking forward to the future and enjoy the trip.

Phoebe Tonkin for Fashion Gone Rogue



Phoebe Tonkin ya es definitivamente una mujer. 
Después de verla en H20, se nos quedó la impresión de aquella pequeña niña que se peinaba con trenzas y le salía cola cada vez que tenía contacto con el agua. Pero ya pasados unos años ha crecido, y su madurez se ha visto aún más reforzada con sus últimos papeles en los que ha tenido que sacar su sensualidad y maldad en estado más puro, como el de Faye Chamberlain, la bruja (nunca mejor dicho) malísima que encarnó en The Secret Circle, allá por 2011, o el que actualmente interpreta en la serie The Vampire Diaries, como la licántropa Hayley.
Además de trabajar en televisión ha aparecido también en el cine con películas como Tomorrow, When The War Began, y ha trabajado de modelo en bastantes ocasiones.

En esta sesión posa bajo el lente de Zanita Morgan para la revista de moda Fashion Gone Rogue.

Photography: Karen Jules

Karen Jules

  (Entrevista en español al final de esta entrada)     

Karen Jules started publishing her photos about three years ago, in early 2010, on Flickr. Now she's 17, and during this time she's become an inspiration for young photographers. 

Thanks to the influence of the multiples trips she embarks on, and the books she reads, the result are balanced, dreamy and romantic pieces of work.

Enthusiasts of what she does describe it as "creative" and "authentic", although she says she hasn't completely developed her style: "[...] I haven't found my way yet. I'm constantly torn between concepts and life, contrast and low-contrast, colour and B&W. So my work still reflects my feelings and personality more than anything else" she tells on her Flickr profile.




 How did you first start in photography?

The first time I felt like I was photographing was on my holiday in Italy in 2009. I just discovered the macro button on my little point and shoot camera and I felt like a real professional photographer with that tiny bit of bokeh when I photographed a grashopper.




 Is there any artist that has influenced your work? How?

I have never really been inspired by really professional photographers because they had a lot more equipment and I always knew they worked on a completely different scale than I did as a young photographer. I looked up to young photographers on Flickr, people who have now become almost like the professional photographers I mentioned earlier, and some people who have lost track of photography by now. Though, on Flickr, there would always be new people to discover and to be inspired by.



 In your opinion, what is important to make a photograph work?

I think you should always have a kind of talent for framing things. You can have the best model or the most beautiful landscape in front of you, if you don't know how to capture it to make it look aesthetically pleasing, your photography won't work.




As it can be seen, you're very young. Do you think young people (photographers, writers...) are often jugded for their age more than for their talent?

They are! At least in my opinion, it happens a lot. Most likely because nothing's easier than judging people on things they can't change. But even though we are often judged, it also gives young artist a chance to impress people and to put themselves out there as genuinely talented artists.



What is that one thing that must be present in your photoshoots?

MUSIC! It makes everything more comfortable and more fun.



 Would you like to say something to the readers?

Probably the sentence you've heard the most. Never give up. You can't become best friends with your camera if you don't learn to understand it. Also, it takes years and years to develop your own style. Many of the photographers you might be obsessed with don't know exactly what 'their' style is. Just photograph every single thing that might look interesting, it's the best way to really get an eye for what is beautiful in life and what you should capture.

María.




Aquí os dejo con algunas fotos que le hice a mi amiga María. Una de esas tardes lluviosas de cigarros y charlas. Mis preferidas.



These are some photos I took of my friend María. One of those rainy afternoons of cigarettes and talking. My favorite ones.

Pasarela Wappíssima 2013

Este pasado sábado 2 se celebró la Pasarela Wappíssima de moda flamenca organizado por Sevilla de Moda y Wappíssima, nuevo portal de moda que ha tenido una gran acogida en el público.

Con un total de 75 jóvenes diseñadores de moda flamenca y más de 300 vestidos, concurrió una intensa jornada que empezó a las cinco de la tarde para terminar a las diez y media de la noche, en la cual pudieron verse cuidadas colecciones ya fueran dirigidas a madres e hijas, u otras para las más atrevidas.

El desfile contó con el patrocinio de Sevilla The Style Outlets, el antiguo Factory del aeropuerto, que tras su reforma se ha estado volcando de lleno en apoyar e impulsar la moda en la provincia.


Aquí os dejo algunas fotos:










Las más pequeñas también desfilaron:




¿Os ha gustado algún modelo? ¿Alguna idea para la feria?

Yo como soy de fuera me he propuesto aprender sevillanas primero antes de comprarme/hacerme un traje. Aunque claro, llevo ya 5 años diciendo esto y en todo este tiempo no he aprendido, así que dudo que en un futuro cercano vaya a hacerlo a menos que alguien me presione (se aceptan voluntarios)

Bueno, me despido ya, espero que tengáis una buena semana!
