Yesterday was our first day back from a 9-day working vacation in France and Germany and I’ve got to tell you, I still haven’t fully readjusted to East Coast time, but I wanted to talk a little about the trip while it was still fresh in my mind. I spent the bulk of the day yesterday taking a first pass at photos and making notes about the some of the experiences we had and how I would like to see them affecting me moving forward. Overall, I came back incredibly inspired, both in terms of conversations I’d like to record and some new directions and techniques I would like to explore in my own work, both photographically and in my paintings.

The current issue of Egoïste magazine — volume 11, number 18 — features an absolutely gorgeous photo essay of Jessica Chastain by Ellen von Unwerth. I love that the magazine isn’t bound — it’s just a series of loose leaf pages in a cover.
