A collection of images that inspire me from photography, design, art, fashion and fantasy. Also updates and sneak peeks for the RaraeAves Etsy shop.

Really love her work. There is also a very interesting short piece on her included in one of the “Art 21: Art in the 21st Century” videos. Actually, that whole series of documentaries are really good.
● And they crowd about the poet and say to him, ‘sing for us soon again’ – which is as much as to say, ‘may new sufferings torment your soul, but may your lips be fashioned as before; for the cries would only distress us, but the music, the music, is delightful.’
— Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or, 1843 [thanks, only on de mairt]
● Ours is an age which consciously pursues health, and yet only believes in the reality of sickness. The truths we respect are those born of affliction. We measure truth in terms of the cost to the writer in suffering — rather than by the standard of an objective truth to which a writer’s words correspond. Each of our truths must have a martyr.
— Susan Sontag [thanks, my serendipities]

She has some really nice work, reminds me a lot of Francesca Woodman. And this photo is gorgeous.
I really like Bea Nettles tarot deck called the Mountain Dream Tarot. She made it in the 70’s and used her friends and family for the models in the photos.
Photo by Sally Mann. Absolutely beautiful.
More Sally Mann. She has some really awesome landscapes as well!
