Local Lens: Laura D’Art

Though Laura is currently based out of Nashville, TN, I wanted to share her work with you because her aesthetic style poignantly captures the hazy, ethereal quality of autumn in British Columbia. Her recent work from a weekend road trip along the Oregon Coast perfectly illustrates a slow, relaxed, appropriately boozy rendezvous between a group of scarf-wearing kindred spirits. You can spot Laura’s work on the Kinfolk website as well as her blog which is chock-full of quiet recollections and delicious inner monologues. Enjoy.

Brian W. Ferry is a Brooklyn-based photographer who has beautifully documented a typical day in Vancouver on his blog, The Blue Hour. With an impressive client list boasting big names such as Starbucks, Aritzia, and Bon Appétit, Brian continues to captivate us with his mastery of subtle nuance and an innate ability to manipulate natural light in the dimmest of lighting conditions. This particular collection conveys the quiet, woody elegance specific to the Pacific Northwest – it fills my heart to see it captured in such a sensual and evocative way. Read more about Brian’s visit to Vancouver here.

Local Lens: Andy Grellmann

Andy Grellmann is a Vancouver-based photographer who was recently featured in the second volume of the Old Faithful Shop‘s “A Still Life” series. The following photos were taken during a recent Eurovan road trip alongside the coast of Vancouver Island. Andy eventually found himself on an island settled 40 years earlier by a few former scholars who built cabins, raised families and led a simple life there. I invite you to scroll down and explore the quiet allure of fading summers in British Columbia.
