“I love storytelling in all kinds : writing, poetry, photo essay, visual communication and building a collection. my mediums are words, poems, photographs, prints, surface of clothing, or even a video. It’s how I communicate that matters, and not always the end products.”
Vanillawalk was started as an online journal, a photo diary, a collection of personal works, illustrations, photography, visual inspirations, style, and anything else I find pleasing for eyes and ears. Just want to share what have been out and about in my mind. The name came from my belief that life is a fine line we are living on, so let’s walk a bit slower that we can smell some inspirations around.
