I have just wrapped up a post over on the other blog that revolves around the photography of Nicoline Patricia Malina and a piece from Harper's Bazaar Indonesia. Based in Jakarta, winner of ELLE's Photographer of the Year in 2009, and with a client list that runs the gamut from Esquire to Coca-Cola, I am not sure why I have not come across her work before.
Shooting in some very impressive exotic locales would help any photographer along, but this artist has a gift for clarity of form and for combining saturated colour with surreal moods to evoke an almost alien feel in her work. It truly is otherworldly. Gorgeous.
