Whenever I really miss London, I decided that the best occupation is to visit Victoria Stusiak's amazing photo blog Three Dee / Two Dee. The 1977-born Canadian artist has an eye for the inconspicuous, the everyday and especially for beauty. This beauty, paired with a hint of London's rock'n'roll retro-aesthetic, is present in each of her photographs. Victoria employs analogue cameras - the pentax k1000, a olympus point, a yashica t4 and a nishika n8000. The pictures are colourful, black and white or even turned into gifs.

Her models are random: girls and boys from the streets of London - crowds, people walking away, busy markets. Hipsters, gangsters, Emos, Grunge, elderly. Other photos capture little details, such as pink hair tied to a knot or the pretty shoulders of a young woman. Victoria also takes lots of pictures of kids, portraying their life in the big city, as if she would be able to slip into their brain for a couple of seconds.

Initially, I met Victoria during her Fine Art Master's course at Byam Shaw College of Art in London, where I only saw her paintings. Those are, however, demonstrating a very similar aesthetic as her photographs do and clearly her inspiration comes from a common source. 3D or 2D - each Three Dee / Two Dee visit fulfills me with London-love. Thanks for that, Victoria!
