“When I was younger the most satisfaction came from starting a new life somewhere and really immersing myself in the place I was at that time. But that often took months to accomplish, sometimes even years in certain places. These days I know the upper left coast is my home so it’s shorter stints right now, and the most satisfaction probably comes from a good night’s sleep.”
Alana Paterson is one of the photographers that has been on our radar for a while. Alana’s photographs breath a certain wild youthfulness. As with some photographers we admire, her personality seems to shine through her work. Alana studied at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, as well as The Lesley University of Boston. She holds a BFA in photography. Her photography has appeared in numerous international publications and she works with clients from all over the world. We kept bumping into Alana’s work over at Poler Stuff and we couldn’t resist the opportunity to drop her some lines.

Emmanuel Rosario is a 26 years old photographer from Harlem, New York. His photographs really push us to work harder to be on the road more often. His work is what we imagined Kerouac’s ‘On The Road’ to look like. His photographs show his friends and him adventuring on the highways across America, drinking bourbon and smoking the night away. Curious about his lifestyle and his photography, we had a little chat with this talented rolling stone.
Wandering is the activity of the child, the passion of the genius; it is the discovery of the self, the discovery of the outside world, and the learning of how the self is both “at one with” and “separate from” the outside world. These discoveries are as fundamental to the soul as “learning to survive” is fundamental to the body. These discoveries are essential to realizing what it means to be human. To wander is to be alive.

Natural elements, encounters, freedom and intimacy are smoothly melting together in Theo Gosselin’s newest photo project „Sans limites”, created along his inspirational recent roadtrips across France, Spain, Scotland and US. He is telling a story about leaving aside all the limitations – physical, geographical, social or relationship based – in a spontaneous life-changing inner and outer roadtrip. It’s a bohemian adventure on how to live, body and soul, in a chameleonic exterior background, far away from a conformist lifestyle that one can easily control. It’s the story of his own life experience.
