I have a major weakness for pretty coffee table books. And while I do want them to look good around the apartment, I also want them to actually inspire me. Whether it is home decor, beautiful stories or photographs – books should be an escape from reality. My most recent purchase is “Tales For Oskar” by the super talented Kristian Schuller. He is my personal favorite photographer (some of you may know him from Germany’s Next Top Model) and I feel like his fashion photography captures the essence of a modern day fairy tale. A few years ago I saw some of his work at the Kunsthalle here in Vienna, and from the entire exhibition his photographs definitely stuck with me the most and made a lasting impression. So much, that I went back to see the same exhibition for a second time.
