Eléna Beatriz studied product design in Milan and now works for a magazine as a junior project manager. She loves to collect every sort of beautiful useless object, as well as books with catchy covers, stones, pieces of wood, picture frames, glass vases and ceramics in general.
She would love to go and live by the sea, and have time to look after her few surviving plants.
She inspires and reminds me of the sexy combination that one of my favorite photographers; Peter Beard manages to capture, La femmina nella natura!
“His love affair with natural history and wildlife, which informs most of his work, began when he was a teenager. He had read the books of Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) and after spending time in Kenya and befriending the author, bought a piece of land near hers. It was the early 1960s and the big game hunters led safaris, with all the colonial elements Beard had read about in Out of Africa characterizing the open life and landscape, but the times were changing. Beard witnessed the dawn of Kenya’s population explosion, which challenged finite resources and stressed animal populations – including the starving elephants of Tsavo, dying by the tens of thousands in a wasteland of eaten trees. So he documented what he saw – with diaries, photographs, and collages.” http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/art/all/45702/facts.peter_beard_2_vols.htm
