New York + Amsterdam

New York + Amsterdam (a polaroid project)

A few years ago I had an idea for a polaroid project, in which I would collaborate with an online photographer friend, to create something magical together, and some lightness in the weirdness of the world wide webs. My idea was to show two different cities, from two different perspectives, in the pastel and soft aesthetics of polaroid film. Together with the lovely Andrea Jenkins I created Atlanta + Amsterdam. It was kind of magical to share this creative connection with someone I never met in real life, and I loved it so much that I knew I had to do the project again, but with another photographer, from another city. Today is the day I proudly present part two of the project, this time with my amazing and talented friend Aundre Larrow, from Brooklyn, New York.

Over the course of the following weeks we will both share a polaroid each Sunday, following a theme. We will show you our perspective, both from New York and Amsterdam, and both shot with a polaroid camera, on 600 film. Today we’ll start with our portraits, follow along if you like!

Shoot Bloom Magazine | cover and photo essay

Bloom Magazine cover by On a hazy morning

Bloom Magazine, a new magazine about gardening, nature and inspiration, asked us to photograph the cover of their first issue and published our photo essay about the annual seed collection at Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam.

You can find more of our photography for Bloom here:

Plants, trees, flowers, plants, gardens, greenhouses, cacti, and some more plants…

When we look at the immense collection of photographs we shot over the years, we can see a very clear red thread: team hazy loves plants. And trees. And nature, botanical gardens and greenhouses. We love to capture passionated gardeners, wonderful artists with plants as their muse, creating art about or with plants. So when we were recently working on our website, we were thinking about the narrative of our work, and how to define that specific part of our photography in a more sensible way. And then we knew it; we decided all these beautiful images of moments we captured amidst this colourful theme deserves a place of their own! 

Without any further due; get a cup of tea, relax and enjoy your own personal botanical garden tour. And if you’re up for more, please check out our new page here:

Planten, bomen, bloemen, planten, prachtige kassen, tuinen, cactussen en nóg meer planten…

Toen we onlangs naar de vele momenten en onderwerpen keken die we door de jaren heen hebben gefotografeerd zagen we een duidelijke rode draad: team hazy is gek op planten. En bomen. En de natuur, botanische tuinen en prachtige oude kassen gevuld met de dromerigste planten. We worden erg blij van het portretteren van gepassioneerde tuinliefhebbers, geweldige kunstenaars, illustratoren en designers die planten als muze hebben, kunst maken met planten in de hoofdrol. Dus toen we  vorige week met onze website bezig waren en wat aanpassingen maakten, dachten we na over dit voor ons zo belangrijke onderwerp en hoe we dit beter tot z’n recht konden laten komen tussen al ons andere werk. En opeens wisten we het; we besloten dat we al deze mooie momenten die we hebben vastgelegd tussen de meest prachtige planten en kleuren een eigen plek verdienen op onze site! 

En dus, zonder verdere omwegen; maak een kop thee, ga lekker zitten en geniet van je eigen tour door ‘onze’ botanische tuin. Mocht je daarna nog meer willen zien; onze nieuwe pagina vind je hier:
