Alex and I shot at Minnehaha Beach in Takapuna, there were heaps of opportunities for photos. It was quite a sunny day, which we were stoked about because it’d been pouring down in the days before. It’s quite a secluded area, it doesn’t have a proper beach access. You can…

Alex and I shot at my house on the [North] Shore. I’ve lived here for about 10 years and have created so many memories here, so I thought it would be the perfect place to shoot. It’s a place where I feel comfortable and relaxed – and the morning sun streaming through the…

Undone’s Week In Things

Undone’s Week In Things

I’ve been in various beauty editor roles over the last decade, which translates into a lot of product I’ve been sent to try and write about. I’m also not the excitable type. But every so often a delivery still comes that causes even my heart to beat just a little faster, and…

Alexis Arnold: Crystallised Books

Have so many ideas and projects on the go just now (see The Mamas for one of the biggest of the bunch) but somehow still managed to spend about an hour looking through photos of the work of Alexis Arnold, who has transformed boxes of discarded books into beautiful sparkling specimens using…

The shoot was at my house. We shot mostly in the garden which had heaps of small palm trees, different pot plants, and a cute little treehouse. We also shot in the living room which had a really nice window looking out onto the garden,and a large tea set. This…

The locations Alex and I shot in were around my neighbourhood and home. It felt completely different to the other shoots I’ve been on because it was completely natural, we were walking around places I’ve known all my life, it was comfortable. The shoot did’t feel like any other I’d…

Alex wanted to take the photographs in my neighbourhood. We walked around the streets of Grey Lynn and chose locations or surroundings that felt very natural, familiar and ‘local’. We were outside, only using the light from the sun and the breeze of the wind as our guide. There are…

The shoot was at Junk and Disorderly, a massive warehouse full of vintage stuff like nice old furniture, heaps of cool paintings and cute lil’ knick-knacks everywhere. It felt different from studio shoots and location shoots outside in gardens etc because it was actually in a store while people were there…

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Even just looking at this little book makes me feel calmer. I ordered the smaller hardcover version from Book Depository as I preferred it to the bigger but flimsier version paperback (which also doesn’t have the pretty watercolour cover) I’ve seen in stores here, and…

Méjico Por Favor

Méjico Por Favor

My home in Puebla for a month was a four-storey 1939 colonial Mexican California-style compound, newly coated in bright red paint, and shared with five other artists and a musician. Days were spent finding ways to distract ourselves (like hours of people watching in the zócalo) from the Mexican midday…
