My favorite Soussia Photography shots from the Amalgamated Lookbook shoot, including the red satin one again but this time BIGGER.
If I ever made it as a model (with my height - never happening), I would like to be known as the cranky model. 
Styling for the shoot was by An Ly and Valerine Truong.

Amalgamated Lookbook Fall/Winter ‘13

image

I had the pleasure of modeling for amalgamatedclothing's first lookbook. I have about four photos in it! 

It is my favorite vintage store in the area - the owner Shelley always has an amazing assortment of well-curated vintage dresses. She costumes broadway shows, has dressed extras on Boardwalk Empire, and recently provided clothing for the movie Kill Your Darlings. Her store was profiled in the Washington Post Express this weekend.

Photos from my last two Springs.

As we’re settling into the fall, I finally got some photos developed, both from my last two Springs.

I spent an afternoon with my friend Alex last spring making tacos and sitting on a Hyde Park porch in Chicago, on probably one of the only nice days of the year that year.

Focus less on the blurriness, and more on the fact that if you tilt your head to the right at about a 35 degree angle, Alex looks like he’s holding a tiny shrunken head. He pointed this out to me himself.

These two photos were the only ones on a roll I took on my dad’s Minolta 35mm camera, despite the fact that the lens didn’t exactly focus.

Perfect dishwashing form!

This late Spring (the end of May, to be exact) was spent down the Cape (Cape Cod, that is), for a pleasant week of New Englandry and beaching.

And tourism, obvi. Click  for more.

What I’ve been doing all this time.

I know, you’re probably wondering “Where the hell have you been?” Probably not, actually. In any case, I promise I’ve been absent for a good cause. No, it has nothing to do with Chaucer. It has to do with my new photography class that I’ve been busy taking pictures for. Seriously, I’m starting to smell like photo chemicals and furthermore, all light, natural or otherwise, is offensive to my eyes.

Without further ado:

Photoshoot and Friends.

Yes, babies. That would be me sitting on top of a kitchen sink looking especially like a Tarantino villainess. I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon playing with grapes and kitchen knives and sitting in places I probably shouldn’t be sitting in. Thank you so much to the talented Mr. Will Larsen for taking these.

Poitiers!

Yesterday I went on a trip to Poitiers, France. It was obviously super different from Paris -but still beautiful in all the ways that small, French towns can be!

Michel Foucault lived here!

As we got up at 5 to go, coffee was a big must.

What was behind me in the case at the restaurant we ate at! 

 "But where do you live mostly now?"  "With the lost boys."  "Who are they?"  "They are the children who fall out of their perambulators when the nurse is looking the other way. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent far away to the Neverland to defray expanses. I&#8217;m captain."  "What fun it must be!"  "Yes," said cunning Peter, "but we are rather lonely. You see we have no female companionship."  "Are none of the others girls?" "Oh no; girls, you know, are much too clever to fall out of their prams."

Poet James Merrill moved to Stonington, CT in 1955 (his poem ‘Water Street’ is about the town). It’s currently where I’m spending the weekend! Here are some snaps of the town.
