I’m back in London again to spend my last two weeks of my summer break in my favourite city with D and my friends. I will try and work as much as I can, like putting together my portfolio, but it’s not too bad since Daniel’s flat is a warehouse dream.I have for the first time in ages managed to write something! There is a story growing within me that I for the first time feel could become something. It’s exciting and terrifying because I know when I go back to Hyper there won’t be any time for writing. I honestly feel like I’ve already graduated and am reluctant to going back at all. But that’s what summers do with you I guess.I arrived last night, all teary and emotionally drained after having said farewell to my family who are moving back to Kenya. And Daniel was waiting with the most delicious meal! Stuffed peppers and Coronas plus oven baked portobello mushrooms with blue cheese. He’s a star. Then we obviously spent the rest of the night in bed, as we haven’t seen each other for over a week. ^^
Also note the salt and pepper grinders that Daniel’s flatmate stole when drunk and luckily didn’t get caught, because they turned out to be silver.When I was in Stockholm I realised that I have forgotten to tell you about Paper Light Magazine and the article I wrote for them.This is how my babe of a friend Frida Vega who’s the founder describes it:
”Paper Light is about seeing. About photography. Especially about providing a larger canvas to creators and images we may otherwise only see in a smaller format on our phones. In this issue we have taken it a step further, exploring photos shot with smartphones, and talking to the people behind them.” You can find me and tons of other babes doing cool stuff in there. Like the interview I did with antique dealer and interior design enthusiast Cristian Brandhild Lind.Here you can order your copy for 115SEK and they ship all over the world!
Alright, hold on fucking tight guys! We finish off with what you’ve been asking for since 2011. I’ve made a London City Guide for Metro! My best restaurants, cafes, hideouts etc. It’s in Swedish for now but I promise to post a translated version on here soon.
