It's 5am, it's raining outside, and I can't sleep. I miss being a fervid francophiliac. A part of me is glad that I'm not as obsessed with French culture as I used to be, but the other part--my unwavering French-loving side--has been wanting to come out ever since I saw An Education. In light of my suppressed francophilia, here are some wonderful French-inspired illustrations by Clare Owen to inspire:
I just finished watching An Education. Such a cinematic film with great acting, photography, set design, and such rich colors too (I loved the violets and blues in this film). I loved the bit of Paris! My francophile self came out watching this. Carey Mulligan was an outstanding lead. And, I think I might have a small crush on Sarsgaard now.
I stumbled upon Scottish photographer, David Eustace, in my Anthropologie newsletter a few months back when he collaborated with them for their new arts based online site, the Anthropologist. Anyways, his work was so beautiful, I had to go check out his website. Most stunning portraits I've seen.
He is also a TV commercial director. His work in this medium is just as poetic as his photography.
