【CASA VICENS】Gaudí’s first work - a century ahead of his time 🙏🏽

【SANCTUARY】Barcelona’s hidden gems 🌴

【TWENTY-SIX】Today。🌾

【MIRÓ】Ya boy Joan Miró’s final studio in Mallorca, remotely designed by his friend (and kick-ass modernist architect) Josep Lluís Sert, left exactly as the artist wanted the world to see his work after his passing: amongst his talismans and plethora of historical and cultural references in colour, texture and light 😭

【DEIÀ】A deep breath and a year of magical thinking 🥑🍑🍇🍒🍊 提神醒脑。

【DE CAP A LA CALA】From the northern-most point of the island to Cala Figuera - spied from the winding and white-knuckled drive down the mountain and clambered (tumbled) down to for the freshest swim with mountain goats chewing cud and quietly judging from rocky shores 👒🐐

【EARN YOUR PAELLA】The best paella of my life, accessible only by boat (hahahaha good joke I do not have a boat) or a steep and spectacularly textured hike down from Son Marroig 💪🏽😭🤤

【CELL 4】Definitely had a small cry visiting Chopin’s home/cell at a monastery in Valldemossa for the winter of 1836 with his then-partner George Sand [male pseudonym of French novelist Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin because sexism]. Here, he partially composed one of my favourite and frankly underrated preludes of his 24 - "Raindrop" Prelude, Op 28, No. 15 - a translation of the harmonies of gentle then stormy rains in his courtyard 😭🎹

【EARN YOUR PANADES】Stocked up on panades verdures (a crumbly Mallorcan pie) at Forn Pedro Garau in sleepy seaside village Colònia de Sant Pere, then hiked along the coast and up the mountain to the Ermita de Betlem - a 200-year-old monastery founded by the monks of Saint Honoratus, Randa and the Holy Trinity of Valldemossa. More judge-y mountain goats to report. 🐐

【ARTÀ】Finished our wild hike in peaceful Artà [originally “Yartân”, derived from the Arabic word for “garden”]. Images 7 and 9 are from the fortress built during the Muslim reign [what is now Sant Salvador church in 5 and 6 was once a mosque]. They also make amazing yogurt-cheese with garlic.

【POLLENÇA】A tiny mountain town with 365 stairs leading up to a tiny church with an angry old cat and a happy old man in a straw hat and cowboy boots playing Albéniz’s “Mallorca” on an even older guitar 🍑

【SHOOT DAY】PT 1/2 ✂️

【CALA DEIÀ】Cheers to the marriage of our dear friend Pomme and her Mr Welham 🐟

【NEW YORK GAVE ME】PT 2/5。SUSAN: @nycsue is the only woman I will go uptown for. We were introduced by @drawbertson and @jdemsey when she was out in Sydney on a solo discovery hustle (her specialty). She’s the only person I know who travels as much I do, Muay-Thai-trains more than I do, and loves @fumiyamamoto as much as I do. [Last year, I shot this portrait series for a commissioned project that never ended up seeing the light of day. Stoked to finally share these cherished images of some of the people who have truly shaped my life in New York.]

【TOKYO BLUSHING】Pt 2/4: Further scouting and prop-shopping 🌸😭

【NEW YORK GAVE ME】PT 1/5。 CHLOE: Two winters ago, I shot this portrait series for a commissioned project that never ended up seeing the light of day. A year and a half (and three hair changes) later, I finally have the go-ahead to share these cherished images of some of the people who have truly shaped my life in New York. First stop: @chloe4dayz - one of my first friends in New York. We met in 2011 - 4 years before I actually made the move. And we have seen. Each. Other. Through. Some. Shit. Homegirl has empathy and intellect in droves (hello Ms @forbesunder30) and a honed eye for discovery of fresh talent. She also has great hair and brunch recommendations (cc: @iamsamtodd)

Guess whose post-ocean meal is whose @alexeijoel @imogenlr @zacseidler 🍴

【NEW YORK GAVE ME】PT 3/5。KRISTA: @khlorisny talks about fabric and textile and colour like it’s a beautiful ancient language that only she knows - I could listen to her talk about textural comparisons between textiles and flora all day. We met 3 years ago at one of @andrea_lieberman’s parties, for which Krista had build a mind-blowing display of Monstera leaves dipped in white paint and I cornered the @alc_ltd like who did this I need to be their friend. Fast forward, she is one of my dearest, she knows everything there is to know about me, and she is one of the most resilient, quick-witted, truly polymath brains I have the great pleasure of strong-arming this weird city alongside.

【SWEET SWIPE →】Shanghai Spring in shades of sucrose 🍡🍧

【EAT YOUR GREENS】上海,柳绿花红 🌱🍄

【NEW YORK GAVE ME】PT 5/5。THE O’LEARYS: Not ashamed to admit that I have turned up on the O’Learys’ doorstop full-blown ugly crying more than once. There is a special bond formed in witnessing somebody ugly-cry. So grateful to have met @jake_oleary right when I moved over here, through a professional gig with @si_philby, @eshandidit, @prettyvacantcyde, @dannyf9, @gary.aspden, @wattsupphoto that quickly got unprofessional and birthed some serious lifelong friendships, of which this is one. Proud to be celebrating my Aussie family away from home in their career achievements and growing brood (s/o: @little_merky). Atlas is obviously now three times the size. @natalie__archer also has nature-defying hair and really good nut butter recipes. [Last year, I shot this portrait series for a commissioned project that never ended up going live. I can finally share these cherished images of some of the people who have truly shaped my life in New York.]

【NEW YORK GAVE ME】PT 4/5。YVONNE: @kungfu_sister is my Wing Chun Kung Fu 师姐. She and @kungfu_gentleman have given me the tools and discipline to have a constant and structured brain space regardless of how frenetic my work and travel can be. Yvonne is also a Chinese calligraphy master - a comforting reminder of our motherland culture and focus when we’re both far from family. Promise I’ll be in town long enough to do my next test soon… 😬🙃 [Last year, I shot this portrait series for a commissioned project that never ended up seeing the light of day.

【LV CRUISE】I’m just here for the bathrooms and 80s makeup 😭😍

The best thing about weekends and @bellagiocafe 🍴 (jokes: supposed to be packing boxes - be back in 5, @major_zhang 🙊)

One last surf with @alexeijoel pre-flight - how good are iPhone wetsuits? 🌞🏄

【BLUR →】CITY 4/5 in 2 weeks: recommended dose of California’s plant-based options 🌴🥗🌿✈️

【4 DAYS AT HOME】Sufficient time for laundry, accidental hair-shade change, Grieg-fix and realising Saarinen dreams 😭✈️

【BLUR →】CITY 5/5 in 2 weeks ✈️ in time to bump into new digs 💪🏽

【CALI HAZE】Emphatic hand gestures referencing countdown to sleeping in my own bed in NY tonight after talking about myself for 10 hours a day for three weeks which is gross and exhausting 😭🎬
