Hi, my name is Thinkie, welcome to my blog!
I'm a student in cultural studies, a museum enthusiast, a scrapbooker and an art journaler. I love to travel within Europe and I enjoy photography. You can read more about me on my homepage.
And in Dutch I enjoy:
I live, I love, I create, I capture, I learn, I enjoy.
Photographing me, myself and I
For me, this spring was a time of transition and instability. Overall, I was doing fine (mostly thanks to my wonderful circle of friends), but I felt the need for a creative outlet, for self exploration and documentation. Now that I've moved, I have all my craft supplies on hand again. I hope this will help me to do more art journaling, which is a great method for this type of thing. But this spring - or actually, the past few years - I didn't have much chance to art journal. The Anton Corbijn exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum inspired me to get my camera out in a more creative way again, so in May and June I took self portraits with my point-and-shoot. I discovered it could take square photo's and went with that for my self portraits. Years ago I borrowed and old box camera from someone and the different aspect ratio was very inspiring, because it made me more conscious of the composition of the photo. I was hoping that as a bonus, this would get me out of my photography rut. I've been shooting pretty much all snapshots for a while now and I'd like to get my groove back. I didn't schedule these photo's or anything, I just decided to make it a two month project and grabbed my camera when I felt like it. They show me in all kinds of moods; vulnerable, thoughtful, tired, at peace, content, happy, playful, waiting for my laptop to start up so I could study...
