Lock & Key

Autumn de Wilde

I said it two posts down, and I’ll say it here too. Autumn de Wilde is a genius. She takes some of the most amazing photographs of musicians for albums and the like, and there’s just no comparison. If you want to be taken seriously in the indie music world, you better get her number. In honor of her greatness, I decided to compile some of my favorite photographs of hers here, but please check out her portfolio for more!

Journals of Dan Eldon

When my sister was packing her stuff up to move across the country, I discovered a book she owned called The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon. The cover was intriguing, so I opened it up and was immediately drawn in.

Dan Eldon was a photojournalist for Reuters before he was stoned to death by a mob in Somalia in 1993 at the age of 22. As mementos of his short life, he left behind notebooks and notebooks of collages documenting his travels and work. For materials, he used anything and everything he could find, from photocopies and photos to beads and food labels, and they come together beautifully. Below are some samples, but I highly recommend checking out the book in person.

Today FormFiftyFive had a post about fifteen-year-old Eleanor Hardwick, whose photography is dreamy, smart, and absolutely impressive. Take a look at her photostream on Flickr to discover more.

Yes, I think she has a long career ahead of her.

I have always loved looking at old pictures, and going through my grandma’s albums was a highlight of my summer. I’ve been doing genealogy research, and putting faces to names makes the project seem much more personal.

Part of my mom’s family is from Iowa, and when I saw the book Sunday Afternoons on the Porch by Everett W. Kuntz at for me, for you, I had to add it to my wish list. The book features pictures of Ridgeway, Iowa from 1939 to 1942, and seem very iconic of the time and location. I hope the rest of the book is as captivating as these photos.

I’ve been eyeing Alicia Bock‘s photos for some time, trying to pick out a few for my boring, blank walls. Trouble is, I just can’t choose between them! I love the soft, dreamy feel to her photos, especially the TTVs, and I think the warmth of her images would aid any home.
