Caught in a lonely existence

To find oneself… to find oneself alone. These are two very real and difficult spaces to be in. On goes the search for something else, for something that creates that meaning in your life, when the secret in fact (and of course) lies within the knowledge that happiness is found within that isolation. Inspired by the portraits of designer Kristian Lopez, photographer Tak Takei takes these elements of loneliness and brings them to life in this quiet and collected photography shoot.

The collected nature of this shoot is elegantly highlighted by the continuous use of a geometric presence within the fashion. Triangular accessories, perfectly circular prints, the block colouring of black and white… all these elements combine to create a calm rendition of the beauty and silence that lies within.

There are soft blinks of emotion throughout the shoot, revealing the thought and inner wonderings of anyone who may find themselves within in this dark and revealing space.

Born into the humble town of Franschhoek, South Africa it was little wonder that Chevaun Roux would find her flavour in life through good food, good wine and stylish apparel. After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
