I’m spending the holidays in Canada, so while I was in the neighbourhood, I stopped by my friend Cosima’s studio, where she runs her new project Hopea, an online shop which works as a sort of archive for Nordic and Canadian modernist jewelry from 1960-1975 specifically. I took a few shots of the pieces and we talked about her inspirations for Hopea (which is Finnish for silver), as well as the history behind some of the forgotten designers.
Last week, I finally handed in my M.A. thesis. Which means my time being a student of art history and Japenese studies came to an end. It took me one year to finish my exams and the thesis, and this had a seriously negative effect on this blog, which you might have noticed.
Goodyn Green is a photographer who has recently self-published her first photobook, The Catalog, a collection of female nudes featuring queer women whose poses reference gay men’s magazines. Here she is in Kreuzberg’s The Fab Lab, where her photos are currently on display. A short interview follows, along with some of her work, which is probably NSFW (depending on where you work, that is).
