Brick Lane Market

8 Apr

On Sunday, I was lucky enough to get some time to do what I love best, photographing people on Brick Lane market. I am fascinated by fashion and individual style, how people look and what they wear, the young, especially the old, materials, accessories, hairstyles, shoes and the list goes on. Especially in this part of town where the trends are so diverse, and with the inclusion of tourists, it is a stage for the international catwalk, with frank and complete expression of individuality. I hope one day these pictures will act as a historical archive of the current times, after all, it is what it is, when it is, where it is, nothing more.  So I hid behind my camera and walked through the market capturing the most amazing people, my eyes going mad, loosening and tightening at each and every capture.

Blue

20 Aug

Dark blue was widely used in the decoration of churches in the Byzantine Empire. In Byzantine art Christ and the Virgin Mary usually wore dark blue or purple. Blue was used as a background colour representing the sky in the magnificent mosaics which decorated Byzantine churches.

In the Islamic world, blue was of secondary importance to green, believed to be the favourite colour of the Prophet Mohammed. At certain times in Moorish Spain and other parts of the Islamic world, blue was the colour worn by Christians and Jews, because only Muslims were allowed to wear white and green. Dark blue and turquoise decorative tiles were widely used to decorate the facades and interiors of mosques and palaces from Spain to Central Asia. Lapis lazuli pigment was also used to create the rich blues in Persian miniatures.
