Pauline Chardin, The Voyageur

Pauline Chardin is a Paris based fashion designer who travels frequently across the globe. She also happens to be an amazing photographer. The Voyageur documents her trips and shows her unique perspective. The symmetry of how each shot is framed and the details that are highlighted, from architecture to foliage, entice viewers to travel.

Of Pauline’s most recent travels, my favorite is her album from Modica, a tucked away town in Sicily. Taken in November, the colors are more subdued and the photographs highlight the weathering on stone surfaces and buildings. Unlike other happy go lucky travel blogs, The Voyageur captures a rich mood that has depth and personality. There’s an attempt to capture the authentic beauty that lies in a particular place, the imperfections and the griminess, without any urge to make it look commercially pretty, as the plethora of Instagrammers would do in a similar place.

The joy of travel, finding personal meaning through foreign experiences, is captured through Pauline’s photographs taken across the world. From a mud hut in Egypt to the lush plantlife of Brazil, Pauline takes visitors on a journey through her unique perspective.

Illustrated Nostalgia

A selection of pages from old and rare scientific manuscripts are on display at Wunderkammer. Sourced from the Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library, some of the prints originated from the European renaissance. Mushroom in a book by Elia Fries published in 1860, illustrator unknown I took interest in the botany section. The colors and shapes of the plants are so vivid--far more than they are in real life. The depiction is far from reality, but they provide distinct details that help identify a particular plant species.
