Anyone else worried that digital is taking over? Alena Jascanka is, and her move to scrap digital is a daring one, but has worked fantastically. Equipped with a Nikon FM and a Pentax ME (bought on Ebay for £20), she has created a unique style which has lead to an impressive portfolio including work for Vogue, Vice Style, I Love Fake and Dazed Digital.
I want to join in on the Lemon Party. Produced for Vice Style, it’s a playful collection of lemon faces, lemons and lemon coloured clothes. I particularly love the photographs surrounded by a border of lemons. Enough about lemons, Alena gives sound advice in an interview with Dazed Digital: “Trust your guts, be good to others, do what scares you and never regret!”
