Lily Pagano: Her Creative Story

A little introduction to Lily: “I was born and raised in London, but have a very mixed heritage – my mother is Turkish and my father is Italian-Norwegian. I’m in the final year of my Masters course in Physics at UCL, so the past four years have been filled with studying whilst also trying to pursue photography more seriously.” Do you think living in London is helping you find inspiration for your photography? I’m lucky to live in a city filled with like-minded, creatively driven people, so there’s always an opportunity to find artists to collaborate with – whether that’s a fellow photographer or a musician. Being around so many people has an incubating effect.  It’s not as if I see someone on the street and suddenly get a burst of inspiration, but it might spark something that later comes into fruition. The constant hustle and bustle around me means I can strike a subconscious balance between input and output – an equilibrium.  What inspired you in the first place to start taking photographs 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.

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 …

EXPLORING THE IMPORTANCE MUSIC

This post is a collaboration with the amazing Abby from seafoaming.com. We explore the topic of music, how it affects people, our favourite songs and the importance of music in our lives. If you haven’t come across Abby’s blog yet you should definitely check it out right after you finish reading this post, as there is a part 2 waiting on her website. On Abby’s part of the post we talk about the contrast between music and other art forms, going back to the materialistic side of music and the nostalgic feelings music gives us.  Let’s start with concerts, and going to gigs to see music live. First, I think it really brings people together, which is amazing. It’s so uniting – everyone’s there to see the same person and hear the same thing, and the whole concert is very – everyone seems very accepted, everyone’s the same. Definitely! Everyone in the crowd becomes one. And the best feeling of the night is when your favourite song comes on and everyone is singing the lyrics. That feeling of …
