Killer looks and endless legs aren't the only weapons in this goddess's arsenal. Her magnetic personality and bohemian demeanour are equally captivating - enough to launch a thousand ships.
Meet Putri. While no actual wars have been fought by men head over heels for this Architecture graduate, there's no denying that it could be a very real possibility. Representing Indonesia, she was captured by Mihaela Noroc for The Atlas of Beauty. Talk about accomplishments. Born and raised in Jakarta, Putri now finds herself in the UK not only modeling, but getting her master's degree in Historic Building Conservation.
The first time we were introduced, through a mutual friend, it felt like being reunited with an old pal. We got along perfectly, to say the least. The rest of the day exploring Kew Gardens was total bliss. Putri was my muse. There couldn't have been a better time or place for a spontaneous shoot. It would have been criminal not to. Dusky and dewy, Putri embodies vernal freshness, always in complete harmony with her natural surroundings.
While on a creative high, it's easy to lose track of time. Only until your stomach's growling pulls you back into the real world, which isn't a bad thing when you're surrounded by glorious flora at the start of spring. It's hard to ascertain what inspired me more, Putri or nature. Or was it Putri in nature? Whatever it was, the feeling of having your senses and mind reinvigorated is divine. Inspiration, not ignorance, is bliss.
My musing of late:
Be inspired. Be happy. Be the architect of the life you want. Do what you love, so when someone tells you to stop and smell the roses, you wouldn't have to, because you love what you do.
