What/who: Michael (from The Teenagers) smoking.
Where/when: Barcelona, July '08.
Why/how: It's still legal to smoke in clubs there so it was like heaven. For him.

Currently traveling around the world Sta just can’t stop snapping. His blog documents his life and the people from it. A mix of random strangers and friends, girls and boys acting freaky, dirty faces and messy spaces. It is all happening in London, in Warsaw, in Tokyo and everywhere else...

What/who: Construction and hand of the stranger....

What/who: One of the performances with Bartek Kraciuk, my best friend.
Where/when: 5th Berlin Biennial, When Things Cast No Shadow, Berlin, March '08.

What/who: Two unknown girls.
Where/when: Old Street tube station, London, 2007.

I Heart Krackney

What/who: Backstage.

Why/how: Light/dark.

What/who: Andrej Skok.
Where/when: Andrej's rooftop in Krackney, my new favourite place to shoot. I so wish it was mine...
