BEAUTY: Photography--Andria Darius Pancrazi

I'm loving these last-days-of-summer images of pink buildings at or around sunset by French photographer--well, I will let him introduce himself:

"My name is Andria Darius Pancrazi, and I'm a French photographer from Corsica, now based in Oxford, UK.

I grew up in Corsica, a Mediterranean island, a blue paradise always half-asleep in the heat. When the evening comes, everything comes to life again, the world turns pink for a while, the birds sing, people go out again. It feels like walking in a dream. Living far away from it most of the time, my perception of it has slowly turned into a very aestheticized, nostalgic version of reality.

For each photo I take, I try to channel that dreamlike, surreal mystery. I like my photos to be as disembodied and abstract as possible, to accentuate that feeling of oddness and otherworldliness that is yet to be found in the most mundane, everyday things if one looks closely enough.

My influences range from David Lynch movies to 80s aesthetics in general. Enjoy your (photographic) summer!"
