Inspired by...

the photography of Hideaki Hamada...
so you want to be a rock 'n' roll star

I can just hear the whir of the fan and their little kid distorted Darth Vader voices and feel that warm sun. Makes me want to be a kid again! I fell hard for Hideaki Hamada's images of his sons. They encapsulate so well the sense of everyday wonder and adventure of being a kid. These brother's seem so close. I wish I had a sibling that I could have grown up with, just like these two, discovering the world together! And, another thing I love is that a lot of his work is shot on film.

give it to me
love is what we need
see the distant cloud, then you feel so proud
