Name: Jacqueline X Passion: Photography
We believe that a city is primarily about its people and their talents.
This week, meet Jacqueline, an amazing photographer.
1. In one sentence: who are you?
A free-spirited level-headed person who values perspective and cherishes experience.
2. What is your passion?
Photography and exploring new perspectives.
3. Current project you are passionate/excited about?
A personal photography project on women and words. Also, taking classes at circus school – this is part of my personal endeavor to go out and do things I only ever dreamed of.
4. How do you get inspired? How do you discover cool things online and offline?
Online: By reading and looking at pictures from sites on my RSS feed. My favourites are by down-to-earth people who stand up for what they believe in, such as Jonathan Canlas who champions the Film Is Not Dead movement or Zi Xi who finds beauty in the vernacular and uses her collection of MessyMsxi illustrations to share that beauty with others.
5. Think of the best experience you would like to do with friends or like-minded people?
Teleporting to the fascinating places that pop up in our conversations.
6. Who is the most inspiring passionate person you can think of?
My grandmother. She’s passionate about living. She’s 80 this year and she just went on a road trip with 10 friends.
7. Best moment/experiences you had in life?
To me, the best experiences in life are those that touch your heart. Like when you know you are being loved. So I am constantly having ‘best experiences’.
If I had to single out the best moment in terms of an encounter that was novel to my senses, it would be a tie between the first time I flew on a trapeze and the first time I dived into a pool and listened to the underwater music that had been piped through it.
8. Most inspiring blog?
Switching between these three and appreciating how a photograph can trigger to imagination the life story of a person at any age: http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com + http://www.thesartorialist.com + http://childrenwithswag.tumblr.com
