Hello friends, long time no talk. I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t posted in a almost a whole month! This is because I have now started interning.
Recently, I have been piecing together the beginning of my new series, “YOUTH”.
This is a photo/interview series I created which began with one simple question, “Does youth really end?” This is about showcasing youth as it really is, exciting, painful, beautiful, ugly, and everything in between. The following video is just a few of the photos I have collected for this project.
(the song is Garden by SZA)
I can’t wait to share all the photos and interviews with you!
all my love,
In times of confusion, panic, and insecurity, I write.
I’m sitting in my tiny apartment in the heart of the village, finally in a city I’ve dreamed about since I was 8, but all I can think about are all the places that I still want to explore. After breaking a leg (don’t skateboard without shoes on) and having a surgery that left me literally laying on my ass all day, my mind was a whirlwind of places and faces and things to see.
I made lists and lists of places to visit. I reached out to friends who live around the globe securing places to stay. I looked at Airbnbs all around. This earth is full of beautiful architecture, people, fashion, etc. that I haven’t seen.
Am I missing it? Should I have signed a 12 month lease?
Does permanence mean comfortability?
I think it’s funny, I’m finally in a city I’ve dreamed of my whole life and I’m questioning it. I’m questioning if this is where I really belong. This makes me wonder if I’ll ever be completely content with where I am. Is there ever true bliss? Or is life always a “grass is greener situation”?
Thank you for reading a bit of my mind.
all my love,
Today for you I present a post dedicated to the earth, mother nature, our planet.
I know how guilty I’m sure all of us are of forgetting to recycle or littering or ubering somewhere when we could walk or bike or take the subway (very guilty of that one). Every time you eat a hamburger, the amount of water that went towards that burger is something you forget about entirely.
I want to clarify, this post is NOT promoting an agenda like vegetarianism, veganism, getting rid of your car, and never forgetting to recycle. Those things are simply unrealistic for some people. It is simply here as a reminder to be mindful and protect our earth.
You may be thinking, “Well I’m one person, what difference can I make?” The answer is a huge one and that starts with getting educated. Below I have listed some of my favorite documentaries.
This is not my way of asking you to make life altering decisions, I’m simply stating awareness is important. We should be able to see and understand what is going on in the world around us. After all, there is no Planet B.
thank you for reading!
all my love and sunshine,
This post is very self-explanatory.
I know I constantly say it, but music and photos are what truly inspire me to create my own art. I believe these mediums can help anyone create something beautiful or inspire them to do something amazing. I really hope you enjoy what I’ve put together.
my heart n souuuuuul,
Spring break is quickly approaching, so I decide to make a nice playlist for really any activity. See it on my spotify @Matenia Altikatis.
Also, I’ve been pretty inspired by some visuals recently, so I decide I’d put together some mood/inspo-boards to go along with the jams(photos not mine). All the colors and photos really speak for themselves and compliment each other. Things like this have been keeping me super inspired and encouraged to make more art.
Sorry for such a short lil post, but I have BIG things coming the next few weeks ❤
stay tuned for more!
all my love,
