avant garde cyprus edition

the last couple of weeks have been quite turbulent for cyprus
our teeny island suddenly being thrust under a economicopolitical spotlight

 there are plenty of opinions and articles and debates raging on
about why, and how, and what happens next
it concerns and troubles me deeply.. but this post is not about that

just before it all went down, avant garde magazine published their cyprus issue
two photoshoots are dedicated to a nostalgic look at some classic cyprus novelties
whatever our future holds, these things are the solid gold of our past

this is the first spread

show this assortment of objects to any cypriot and they will instantly know what they are
and probably even have fond memories of them

the second shoot introduces models (two friends of mine actually, woo!)
 with another whole range of objects

for some reason, the editorial reminds me of the lady gaga 'telephone' video
..maybe its the phone in the next pic..

my favourite thing here is the fish napkin holder, i think my grandmother had one!

and finally a surprise!

i don't often talk about or promote my blog, although i have met people who've come across it
so seeing this mention was unexpected but very sweet
my first appearance in print, thanks avant garde!
