Photographed by Nina & Darek

Story

It was late February. A bit bored after the December holidays we wanted to create something just for fun. It was cold outside so we took a chance to photograph in our friend’s place, in a beautiful tenement right in the center of Poznan city. The main goal was to create just something. No plans, sketches beforehand whatsoever. Ultimate creative freedom.

Whenever you have a nice shot and you like the pose but you feel it’s too similar to other photos from that pose it’s always great to try to crop it. It’s very useful when you want to tell something with few images on Instagram carousel posts or Stories. Our cameras usually have lots of pixels to help us out so we can make our art more interesting for the viewer.

We had been walking past each other for a year, without really paying attention… It took a choir competition and a trip to the magnificent Riva del Garda where one gorgeous evening we went for a stroll in united mission to find somewhere to eat. That was the moment that changed everything in us and around us – we fell in love. It was 2013 and we have been walking together since. Today, we live a life filled with classical music, pleasures of great comfort food that we shamelessly enjoy from time to time and a good movie on a Friday night. We cannot imagine our home without cats.
