I discovered the work of Neil Krug from the amazing blog 500 Photographers. Krug uses Polaroid film that has been expired for several years to create many of his images and is inspired by B movies from the 60s and 70s. He is also interested in a futuristic, sci-fi aesthetic and likes to render 3D animation; an example of which is shown on the album cover for Gravity the Seducer. One of his most famous works is the Pulp Art Book, which contains a series of portraits of his supermodel wife and muse, Joni Harbeck.
He has also produced album art for My Chemical Romance, Ladytron, The Scissor Sisters and The Pierces. I love the grainy, dreamy quality these photographs have and they make me realise how much I would like to start working with film.

No other quote exemplifies my life quite so well at the moment. Photos of my trip back to Hanoi where I now live again, via Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Saigon. Amazing going back to Siem Reap after 5 months; for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on, it’s one of my favourite places. It was awesome being recognised by some of the Honour Village kids when I went to see them, and I’m hoping I can get back there to volunteer sometime soon. There was also the obligatory second visit to Angkor Wat, which was almost as mind blowing as the first time around. Currently in Hanoi, living in a strange hotel room on the roof top, where I occasionally catch glimpses of rats in the corridor and am trying to find a job. As you do.
