Four “Stkchy” portraits. I’m having way too much fun on this app. <3






Silver/white hair love

Silver foxes.

I keep telling my mom she should start embracing her grey/silver hair bc I honestly feel like she could rock it.

“Nevertheless, some museum visitors might see guards, so often silent and stone-faced, as more machine than human. That is a misconception. Many guards … speak with obvious passion about the exhibitions, as well as the visitors, for which they feel responsible.”



Blue- Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Yves Klein


This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.

A Collision of Cultures and Mediums in Paul Louise-Julie’s Sculptures and 3D Paintings


Naturally occurring sea shell patterns similar to those generated by cellular automata (Conus textileConus aulicus, Oliva porphyria, Lioconcha castrensis).

Abandoned house of a neighbor.

❝ I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. ❞


Photographer Walter Sachels was terrified of death, so much so he refused to see his mother after she passed away. Upon entering his 70s, Schels finally decided to overcome his fear through a bold, bizarre project – photographing individuals before and directly after their death.

Schels and his partner Beat Lakotta began approaching potential individuals at hospices in Berlin and Hamburg. The pair were on constant alert, at times running out in the middle of the night to shoot before the undertaker would come.

Though emotionally draining, Schels recognized that the series became an important epitaph to people before they actually died. With family and friends unable to cope with the looming truth, terminally ill patients often feel completely isolated.

“It’s so good you’re doing this”, Schels quoted a dying man to The Guardian, “No one else is listening to me, no one wants to hear or know what it’s really like.”

Schels is no longer terrified of death and now sees avoidance of the issue as a serious problem in contemporary society, people unable to be truly present for loved ones when they need them most. Life Before Death is an attempt to confront our worst fears and perhaps, to see those nearing the end in a more human light. For the individual stories behind each of the portraits click here
