Veruschka

I was inspired by the blogger style tease, when I stopped by her blog the other day and she had a project where she painted her flat mate and photographed her. It reminded me of a book I have had for years, that I absolutely find the most beautiful collaboration between two artists. I love collaborations, hence our blog. I feel people who truly inspire you to be a more creative version of yourself are sometimes rare to find. And when you find that person and it works, beauty happens. Veruschka broke onto the scene in the 60's as a top model and actress of the film Blow Up.  She has been photographed by all the greats, like Richard Avedon, as well as graced the covers of all the best magazines. In the 70's she meet Holger Truizsch a prominent painter and photographer, together they transformed her beyond recognition. The book is unbelievable and full of so many photos we had a hard time editing down to some of our favorites.


I just wanted to end by saying that so far, since Camilla and I have been blogging we have found some truly talented people who have inspired us in various ways. This weekend we are planning to shoot of some vintage pieces we found in the last month, and because it's also Thanksgiving break maybe we will end up getting to shoot more than one. Hope you all have a wonderful, inspired weekend. XO Valerie and Camilla

So happy you enjoy our blog! We will definitely be following you as well. Love this post, your words of collaboration are so eloquently put. It is rare to find a person who gets you (all of you) so well, that there is not much else to do but latch on and let the inspirations flow. We are both very close with are mothers and their style and love of the arts has always inspired us (no doubt they are why we are where we are) so to see such an adorable mother/daughter team like the two of you is truly exciting! Look forward to more amazing collaborative posts!
