{ inspired by: cori kindred }




I recently discovered Cori Kindred's work through her photos on flickr and was instantly drawn to her soft, dreamlike polaroids. Browse her polaroid love set and it's oh-so-obvious why she is one of the featured photographers in the much anticipated and soon to be released, for the love of light: a tribute to the art of Polaroid book.

It was after diving head first into Cori's thrifty set of photos, however, that I knew I had found a {virtual} soul mate.





Cori, who recently relocated to Portland, OR., is particularly fond of ephemera and has amassed an amazing collection of vintage photos, books, and distinctive paper goods. 





Often these finds provide the inspiration for the one-of-a-kind offerings in her recently launched shop. I am in *love* with her found paper journals and notebooks.




Cori's gorgeous thank you post cards 
that are included with each purchase. 

From guerilla art to 32 things, there is much to discover about this multi-talented artist on her inspiring blog {this week's featured blog of the week}. Visit her shop here and flickr photostream here. Many of Cori's photos are also featured in a rotating gallery here. For the whole package, simply visit her web site.

Update:
Sweet Cori reminded  me that she would like to offer S.HOPtalk readers a 15% discount off their total purchase in her shop through the end of July. Simply enter July15 at checkout to receive your discount. Thank you Cori!!!
