Photos That Will Make You Care About The Refugee Crisis

Everyday people have to escape their homes due to wars, prosecution, natural disasters and poverty. In 2016, over 5,000 people died or went missing whilst trying to enter Europe and more than 3,000 people lost their lives in 2017. The refugee crisis is incomprehensible for some of the people in the West because we have not been exposed to it. The news only shows us a tiny fraction of what’s actually going on and most of us, if we’re lucky enough, never had to go through what some are going through right now. However, not knowing anything about this crisis when you literally have the whole world on your fingertips is choosing ignorance… I will not be writing a lot in this post, because I don’t think any words can really grasp the intensity of what is happening in the world at this moment – but photos definitely can at least attempt to. So if you don’t feel connected to and/or uninterested in the current refugee crisis here are some photographers who might change your …

PHOTOS FROM JOURNALS – Josh Kern

Josh Kern is the first photographer to be featured on kapture. As this site starts to grow, it expands into new territory and hopes to inspire by sharing art of many other artists. Kern is a German emerging photographer who not only creates art but manages to capture feeling in his work by shooting in film, he adds rawness to his work. His work is unique because he picks up the camera when everyone puts theirs away; during the moments when you’re too busy actually being alive than capturing the moment for social media. And through pairing his work with journal entries, Kern adds even more rawness to his work. His work teaches us to do what makes you uncomfortable, because that’s when we produce the best art.

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ‘LADY BIRD’

‘Lady bird’ is a love letter in the form of a film. It’s about the love for the city of Sacramento, family and friends from a lost, struggling soul – Christine “Lady Bird”. Lady bird left me feeling like I’ve just watched a film that somehow managed to capture all of my feelings about growing up; like it somehow showed snippets of my life even though it took place on the other side of the world, with completely different people. Even the way the movie was filmed and the way the story drifted felt like my life… I watched this movie twice already, and will probably watch it more in the future, but it was the first time I’ve watched a film in an independent cinema, and it made the whole experience even more memorable. Going to an independent cinema doesn’t even compare to going to grand, popular and very futuristic-looking multiplexes. It adds so much to the experience, because when I walked into the building, I could feel the history of the place. It …

how to feel good in your body.

1.BE KIND TO YOURSELF Become aware of your thoughts when you look in the mirror. Identify if the things you are thinking are positive or negative. If they’re negative, don’t worry about changing them straight away but simply realising that you are thinking them is good enough. The next time you stand in front of a mirror, look at something that you love about yourself – something that makes you unique. Instead on focusing on your biggest insecurity whenever you look at your body, focus on the little things, like your freckles or the way your hair shines in the sunlight. 2. EAT HEALTHY FOOD Food is fuel. Eat foods that you know will fill you up and give you a lot of energy. When your hunger needs are satisfied with the right nutrients you will also feel happier and calmer. If you constantly feed yourself unhealthy foods, your body will not be able to function properly and you would want to eat more shitty foods because they won’t satisfy you properly. Feeding yourself the …

AN ART SKETCHBOOK FLICK THROUGH

I took a week break but now I’m back with awesome posts planned! I was always a creative individual. As a child I was always covered in colourful paint and create an endless collections of drawings. Before I knew what a camera was, I always used to draw. I didn’t care about how good or bad it was or what techniques I was using or how realistic it was… I just picked up a pencil or a brush and went for it. However as soon as I started school everything changed. Once someone started telling me what and how to draw I lost all my interest. I drew because I had to, not because I wanted to. It’s not like it didn’t bring me joy anymore, because it did, but I found myself only drawing for school. When I finished my Art GCSE, at the age 16, I felt relieved – I would never have to go to that class anymore or draw how the teacher told me to. But a few months passed and …

MEET NICOLE CONSTANTE

I never done this post before, but it had to be done. I try to make my blog all about inspiration and creativity, and this amazing girl that I’m interviewing in this post has inspired me with her “just do it” attitude, relentlessness and constant empowerment that she puts into the world for a long time. Meet Nicole…. How would you describe yourself in 3 words? Student of life.   What made you set up a blog and what does “Unruly Girls” mean to you? Blogging was my first love. Before photography, before arts and design, I fell in love with it first. Telling stories with the hopes of inspiring has always been my passion. It allows me to create, share more of myself, and build relationships with other people out of my arms’ reach. Unruly Girls are carefree, confident, brave, and raw. They are empowered to go beyond this unspoken expectation of girls to behave a certain way that confines us inside boxes of stereotypes and prevents us from reaching our full potential. Unruly …

CANNES & MONACO

After posting these pictures I will have to officially have to say goodbye to summer – and I really don’t want to do that 😦 However in this post, I’m finally sharing my photos from Monaco and Cannes. When I went on my trip to Nice, with my mum, we also took two days out of our stay in Nice and went to explore Monaco and Cannes. It was such a good decision! Monaco was an interesting and exciting experience. For the whole day there I was wondering how is it possible that so much wealth is stored in such a small place! I saw a 3 floor yacht with a helicopter parked at the top… like, really?! It was honestly the highlight of the day! My mum and I couldn’t stop laughing about it. In other news – I loved the architecture there, the tall buildings kind of resembled Hong Kong… I don’t know why but Monaco didn’t feel like it was in Europe. After a lot of walking and climbing we arrived at …
