Mills College has turned me into a thirsty piece of trash.
blackboard is the worst invention of all time because there’s literally no way to escape your homework. sick with the flu? homework’s on blackboard. snow day? homework’s on blackboard. house burned down? use your fucking phone because the fucking homework’s on blackboard
cute date idea: let me sleep in your bed for hours on end because I’m tired of being a person

Torkil Gudnason: Body Vase
Agency Lookbooks | A. Galerie, Paris
Torkil Gudnason’s Body Vase juxtaposes flora with human curves, eroticism with innocence, and nature with it’s inherent beauty and allure. There is a quality of mysterious fascination within these images - they are charged with a charm that accompanies temptation. The soft, intimate lighting comes from shooting exclusively with daylight – and allows the viewer into a small, private world consisting only of photographer and model.
His images have drama and a sculptural quality that brings to mind the heft and simplicity of Henry Moore or Modigliani - “I like distortion as a sculptural effect,” he says.
Shot over a period of nine months, Body Vase brings together two passions for Torkil – flowers and the human form. It is remarkable that these images were created in-camera, with very little retouching – lending the increased power of authenticity to these images, and leaving us wondering at the beauty that exists within this world.
