Photo Friday: The Lyrical Alexandra Valenti

I just spent the last hour looking through every single photo on Alexandra Valenti's site and there are more on the blog that I haven't even gotten to yet. Alexandra is an incredibly talented independent photographer from Los Angeles that I just stumbled across. I adore photography (in case you haven't noticed) and I love finding new photographers whose work I can oogle, so I was very happy to find Valenti's work. Every shot is dreamy and like a fairy tail, yet dirty and gritty at the same time. I love that juxtaposition of the soft focus and washed out colors with the darker more intimidating subject matter. A big thumbs up.

Valenti takes pictures the way I wish I could capture life. They're lyrical. They convey movement while being still and tell a story while saying nothing at all. Do you see how much I love these little contradictory juxtapositions? Now if I could get something like this for one of my outfit posts, I'd be one happy little lady.

I think the reason that I get so enamored with photographers is because I wish I had the eye or the talent. I think I would love taking pictures all day long, I mean I already have quite the collection. Although, I guess it's never too late to change our place in life. Some food for thought for the weekend I guess.

Have a good one guys!

  1. It's really quite magical sometimes when you take a super shot. I especially like seeing photos come alive when I merge exposures together to make an HDR photo.
