surrounded by tangerine crates of theology

Quintessentially British (So Dr. Who, Sherlock loving) and art nerd. Fem who supports men too, though I shouldn't need to specify that. Pretty much get excited about everything. Believe in Jesus and not being a dick: this is a tumblr of acceptance and inappropriate amounts of hugging, modern art and photographs of people enjoying being alive. Tea and Asks welcome.

"Right after I lost vision in my eye, I was so bad at walking that I ran into a girl eating ice cream, and knocked her cone out of her hand. She screamed: ‘Are you blind!?!?’ I turned to her and said: ‘I am blind actually, I’m so sorry, I’ll buy you a new cone.’ And she said: ‘Oh my God! I’m so sorry! Don’t worry! It’s no problem at all! I’ll buy another one.’ So we walked into the ice cream store together, and the clerk said: ‘I heard the whole thing. Ice cream is free.’"



People are really cool sometimes.

Justyna Neryng (Poland/UK) - Childhood Lost

Justyna Neryng is a fine art photographer from Poland, living and working in Brighton, whose photography has flourished into a substantial body of portraiture. Four years ago Justyna begun to collaborate with her daughter Nell on an on-going autobiographical project Childhood Lost, exploring the nature of portraiture and memory: “I am producing a series of portraits that evoke, characters that populate this world we know as childhood. A court of character’s from myths and dreams. The images are aesthetically inspired by portraiture from the Golden Age of Dutch painting. By drawing on paintings as inspiration I am hoping to give a timeless feel to the final images. Key to the project is the painstaking styling and prop building, which I am using to evoke these different persona played out by my daughter.”

There’s Hope for the Hopeless by Hayli Alyce

"All to often in this world our graphic design skills are directed towards the advertising industry and making products or services so desirable that a person is compelled to stop, read the ad, and possibly go but the item or service. I wanted to utilize my skills in a more meaningful manner. Going beyond business and into the heart of the people.

If you are part of a privileged group and have to constantly demand that somebody in an oppressed group say “not all (insert privileged group here) are like that” 

what you are really demanding is that they reassure you that you’re not like that and you’re not being held accountable 

which is a cowardly thing to do and also shows the great lengths you will go to in order to avoid examining your role in a toxic system

ACTUALLY THOUGH tbh I do have a minority view on that. Maybe people who demand you don’t generalise are just getting out of it. But don’t judge everyone on what most people are like. Idk what do I know
