as ink remains. weird stories: i've read 'as ink remains' (noemie's blog) for a few years now. she lived in toronto for quite a while, and i would look to her for food tips, and her beautiful graphic design. then, with my move, i lost touch of a lot of my regular blogs that i used to read consistently. then - different life... i was hired for my new job, and did my new job training with a really awesome and spectacular group of people. one night when catching up with those old blogs, i finally made the connection that noemie from the blog, and noemie from my new job training WERE THE SAME NOEMIE. imagine that. so we did lots of 'OH MY GOSH!' and 'NO WAY' and all that jazz. and now, i feel a lot better about creeping on her amazing life, because i can consider her a friend, and it's less weird. noemie specializes in food, food, fashion, graphics, travel, food... and food. and her photos are stunning. you should check out her blog too.
2 // nicole dee. i think nicole may qualify as being in my top 5 favourite photographers of all time. and not just because she's my friend. i oogle her work constantly - be it lifestyle shots, self portraits, or simple day to day shots, she makes everything look natural, honest, beautiful and soulful. she lives in toronto, which helps - as it's one of my most favourite cities to see photos of. she takes amazing city shots, mixed with a life that is saturated with awesome and aesthetically pleasing people, and super fun things that i wish i did more of.
3 // christian mackie. another toronto based photographer, who takes photos of amazing desolate places, and makes run down and seemingly forgotten places look incredibly secret and wonderful. he did a photo series a little while ago of my old toronto hood, and i knew i was in for it. it's beautiful, and pulls at all the right heartstrings. he does great shots, in grungy places, while making them look like places you want to hide away in.
4 // monodelespacio. whatever it is, it's good. structural, architectural, empty spaces, forgotten places and mostly the mundane in new and spectacular ways. lots of colour, which is unusual for me to enjoy, but i love watching these shots in my feed. an "observer of daily chaos".
