Vintage Rapunzels

“I think that the most important thing a woman can have- next to talent, of course- is her hairdresser.”

― Joan Crawford

Nu is mijn eigen haar aardig lang momenteel, maar het is werkelijk niks in vergelijking met hoe lang vrouwen het vroeger soms hadden. Op vele foto’s uit mijn vintage fotocollectie reikt het haar van verschillende vrouwen zeker tot op de enkels. Vaak zelfs nóg langer. Wat een werk moet dit geweest zijn! (meer…)

That’s So Fifties

“The fifties is a decade when every year is markedly different from the one before and after. That doesn’t happen every decade. 1983 isn’t that much different from 1986. But 1953 is very different from 1956.”

― Sara Sheridan

Vintage Pictures Blended With Colorful Natural Elements

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

― Albert Einstein

Via Bored Panda belandde ik laatst op de website van kunstenares Merve Ozaslan. Merve maakt collage’s van vintage foto’s welke ze combineert met verschillende elementen uit de natuur.

Merve Ozaslan: “Images are vivid and talk about the joys of life, reminding us to live everyday to the fullest.”

― Marilyn Monroe
