a lot of love,
a lot of blood

"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.


The Eternal Inferno - Italy’s (Perhaps the World’s) Smallest Volcano

More accurately resembling an eternal campfire, Monte Busca Volcano has been a source of permanent flames for hundreds of years. Referred to as Inferno by the locals of Monte Busca; a place where fire finds its home in the smallest volcano in Italy and, most likely, the world. A wondrous geologic oddity where emissions of gaseous hydrocarbon, a natural gas vent, come into contact with the oxygen from the air keeping it constantly alight, giving rise to a phenomena called “burning fountains”. These ever-present flames even served the troops during World War II as a source of heat for cooking and other ignition needs and are a fascinating spectacle not to be missed.

"One mile from Portico is a place called Inferno by local inhabitants, where the earth is dark and rough and where there is a 4-foot large hole in which a fire flame steadily rises from the ground; it burns the fresh wood placed on it and can only be extinguished by throwing woollen cloths on it. Near this hole you can find many gold, silver and metal coins.”

Leandro Alberti, 1588

Kyle Thompson - Graveyard Girls (2013)

I’ve been in Tennessee with my friend Marissa Bolen.  Yesterday we planned a huge shoot which involved building a dam, and covering models with flour and milky water.  It was a group effort.  You can see her shots here, you should follow her!

Body Language tells the story about the relation between physiology and intimacy. What is the true love feeling compared to biology reactions?

Elizaveta Porodina

Elizaveta Porodina is a 24 year old photographer and student of psychology based in Munich. She was born in the snowy Moscow and went to Germany when she was 13. Her photographs are inspired by the almost constant feeling of melancholy, the pains of trying to be pure at heart and the urban nostalgy that leaving Moscow left in her.

Her GOLD PROJECT is based on the idea of a quasi-documentary photography about an alternative stardust civilization.
