Sometimes something can look beautiful just because it's different in some way from the other things around it. One red petunia in a window box will look very beautiful if all the rest of them are white, and vice-versa.

When you're in Sweden and you see beautiful person after beautiful person after beautiful person and you finally don't even turn around to look because you know the next person you see will be just as beautiful as the one you didn't bother to turn around to look at - in a place like that you can get so bored that when you see a person who's not beautiful, they look very beautiful to you because they break the beautiful monotony.

The big surprise called Pari Dukovic.

Bought New York Magazine to entertain myself during my atrocious flight to the Caribbean and not only was I surprised with the mind-boggling copy-quality of the magazine, but also with their smashing choice of photographers. Jenny Elbert, Wolfgang Freithof, Alex Subrizi and (my favorite) Paolo Roversi are only a few to name that are included in the magazine. It definitely treated me with the big surprise called Pari Dukovic, with his photographic portfolio, taken at the fashion shows in Paris, Milan and New York. Can't believe that this was the first time I got acquainted with him.

I googled the man and scanned through his portfolio and whether shooting boxing matches, burlesque dancers, street photographs of Istanbul or New York or backstage at the fashion shows, I find Pari's photographs high in contrast, gritty, dark and very dreamy.

Here are some of his stunning photo's in the mag.

    Goodbye Korea! 안녕

    Shot this photo really quickly with my Blackberry when I left Jukjeon, the city I was living in during my time in Korea. Even though I had a sight like this almost everyday, I couldn't stop being astonished with the view.

    I have been abroad for a long time now, but it amazes me how close I still am with my friends back home. Skype is the new 2pm coffee meeting.

    I had the biggest epiphany a few days ago when I heard that a very old friend of mine was engaged, went to Africa for volunteering work and is a fully devoted Christian now. I had no knowledge of any of this for a very long time, although this all happened when I was still living in Europe.

    I truly believe that people first need to find themselves, in order to really connect to others. Because how can you become close to someone if you aren't even sure who that person is they are getting close to.

    For me, going abroad and experience uncomfortable situations is a way of finding my true self. And maybe the reason I wasn't able to really connect to others before, and lost contact with them, was because I was still searching for who I really was.

    So the real question now is: 

    How do we find ourselves, without losing each other?
