Istigkeit











Incase you are wondering, 'Istigkeit' means 'Is-ness', neither agreeable nor disagreeable it just is, used by Meister Eckhart. 'The Being of Platonic philosophy- except that Plato seems to have made the enormous, the grotesque mistake of separating Being from becoming, and identifying it with the mathematical abstraction of the Idea. He could  never, poor fellow, have seen a bunch of flowers shining in their own inner light and all but quivering under the pressure of the significance with which they were charged, could never have perceived that what rose and iris and carnation so intensely signified was nothing more, and nothing less, than what they were- a transience that was yet eternal life, a perpetual perishing that was at the same time pure Being, a bundle of minute, unique particulars in which, by some unspeakable and yet self-evident paradox, was to be seen the divine source of all existence.' -Aldous Huxley The Doors of Perception


So I recently shot a few style ideas by the talented Blanka Biernat, for Self Indulgent Geek, styled by the inspiring and breathtaking Ange Hughes. Despite the shitty rain we got some great shots over countless cups of coffee and tea, biscuits and fashion mags. We will be doing something again soon, so the excitement is starting to overwhelm me. Keep your eyes open! And just for the weekend I've attached a great song. Enjoy x
