Just got back home. I shot most of my travels on film so waiting to get the images back from the lab and then I’ll post them here. In the meantime, here’s a summary of the past month.

(Below: self-portrait in Valerio’s apartment where we stayed in Turin, Italy)

I’m back home, physically, I think, although not quiet in my body yet.

My mind is floating around in the international universe, hanging on to some of the new and greatest memories of my lifetime so far… Lost in fresh, bitter-sweet emotional nostalgia over all the beautiful people I spent time with: old dear friends, and the new cherished friends I have made over the past month of my journeys…

My heart was definitely left in Italy. I’m in love with Italians and every single thing about their beautiful country, how they live, what they care about. Italians do it right.

My soul needs at least a couple of weeks to figure out what it’s been through.

My brain is doing it’s best to stay awake- filled with millions of tiny disjointed scenes and fragments of this crazy whirlwind trip, all swirled into a jet-lagged haze of a psychedelic dream: Romanian strippers in Torino. Gypsy pickpocket children dressed as clowns. A lazy mime. A satanic sculpture of epic intensity built directly over hell. An obelisk built over the most negative energy point on earth. Eating the official “best pizza in Italy”. Drinking illegal blackmarket wine. Pink flashing bunny ears. The “I love you” fan. Gelato. Menton! Mediterranean waters. Hole-in-the-ground toilets. Baby Mila telepathically asking me to be her official Auntie. Drinking wine with new friends while watching Irene’s raging flood of a river rise. Photographing a beautiful couple in a Catskills hurricane. “There are 50 000 different words for ‘slut’ in Italian”. Huge French windows that open up to sweet Italian Pasticcerias in the morning. Brioche & Cappuccino. Listening to ASTRA while driving through the Alps. Small, hidden villages. GRAPPA that gets you stoned. Homemade Limoncello. Markets. Antiques. Twerking with UK’s finest photographers. Narcolepsy. Busted lens. Elderly Italians dressed to kill! Taxis, planes, busses, trams. The exact location where Nietzsche lost his mind after petting a horse. Epic churches. Watching the sun rise. Canals. Singing French driving songs to an upset baby “Un kilomètre à pied ça use, ça use, Un kilomètre à pied ça use les souliers.” Homemade pesto. Beautiful windows & their accompanying clotheslines. Rimbaud. Doodle the 3-legged dog’s magical grave garden. The incomparable Lady Jane and her art & soul! Antipasto. Ancient castles. Family saves the day. The locals of Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Iced cappuccino in Williamsburg. Noise. Quiet. Bad smells. Wonderful smells. Teo’s plants. Noelle & Brandon’s indigo wall. Kat’s pink hair. Patrick’s purple shirt. My seafoam green designer dress getting destroyed by Balsamic vinegar, coffee and wine all in one meal. PappinNurse/ PappinMom/ Pappinating/ Pappin’s first coffee/ Pappin’s last night. Lidia’s cooking. Teo’s cooking. Stuart devouring Pâté. Mila’s special “dance”. Patrick’s humor! Antlers. Fur. Skulls. Smoking fags in London. Hanging out with fags in Italy. Discussing fags in New York. The 70-yr-old haunted busted-spring mattress that we slept on at Patrick’s beach house. Seeing a collection of posters for a museum showing of old paintings and realizing all the subjects where loaded on Laudanum or other Opiates “Hey, Grandpa’s on the nod, someone take a painting real quick!”. Our grand ‘last supper’ the night before we left… As for the Italian leg of the adventures, my bestie-bro Patrick likes to summarize: “We drank Barolo and Barbera in Piemonte (where it comes from); Ate Pesto in Liguria (the region that invented it), and if that wasn’t enough, drank PASTIS in the South of France where Serge Gainsbourg fucked Jane Birkin.”

Oh My God.

My eyes have seen ultimate beauty on the Italian and French rivieras.

Italy is perfection. Visually, auditorily, olfactorily and especially gastronomically, I have never been so fulfilled. I thought I had eaten tiramisu before, but I hadn’t until I ate it in Italy. I thought I knew what wine tasted like, or what food should taste like, but I didn’t… I knew nothing until I ate and drank in Italy. What do I eat and drink now? Anything would be a sad attempt at merely satisfying hunger now that I’m back home. Italy destroyed any chance for me to ever eat an enjoyable meal again, unless, of course, I go back to Italy. Which I will, often. I brought back 5 extra pounds of weight on my body – every ounce was worth it.

Besides learning one ultra-important, survival-dependent phrase in both Italian and French: “un vino bianco per favore/ un vin blanc s’il vous plaît”, respectively; I also learned that French people really DO walk around in the streets holding that quintessential French baguette under their arms… I learned a few other things which may be too difficult to remember in my current state of mind.

100 bruises. 1000 mosquito bites. 2 sprained ankles. A fingernail bent all the way back, and having to bend it back into place. Travel-related back pain. Caught in hurricanes and escaping floods. Sadly missing my job in Fiji because of Irene. Losing luggage in London. Losing a diamond from my engagement ring in NY… And a plethora of other assorted little difficulties. My bones and muscles hurt from running around the earth, airports, cities. But my body also feels so warm, remembering every hug and kiss from every beautiful person I met everywhere I went… I have taken a small piece of each person, place, and thing, and brought it back home. I feel different. I feel more.

I realized I was finally home when Stuart and the cat and I all snuggled in our bed last night. Exhausted, I remember sighing “ah, home” before drifting off to sleep. But, ironically, this morning was the first time in a month where I woke up confused as to where I was…

Travel. IS. Home.

Always has been.

I need some time to gather my thoughts, catch up on the massive pile of work that awaits, and ease back into my life, but all I can say right now is THANK YOU: To everyone that crossed my path in the last few weeks… To all those who made my London workshop so amazing- helped organize every detail, shared their hearts and minds with me that day, and after-partied like true Artists…! To everyone who has awaited patiently for me to respond to emails due to my lack of wifi access over the past few weeks… To everyone who spent any time with me in the past month, who took care of me everywhere I went, helped me, fed me, gave me a place to sleep, put up with my jet-lagged-lack-of-sleep existence & babble, and who opened up their hearts and homes, shared their families, their time and their love, shared their wine and their humor, and made the past month of my life one of the greatest & most significant fragments of my 34 years so far- I love you so intensely.

From my brain, heart, spirit, mind, body, soul, and each of my senses; I am the luckiest person on earth to know you. From every corner of myself, my appreciation and love for you runs deep and wide. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Noa

  • September 20, 2011 - 3:24 pm

    Michelle - Sounds like an amazing time. Italy is exactly that for me. Hoping to make it my home in the next few years. They do totally understand what life should be – food, friend, families, art, culture, wine, music.

  • September 20, 2011 - 6:19 pm

    Kathleen @ weddingswaterside.com - That was so lovely to read. Well written and wholly felt.

  • September 24, 2011 - 1:02 am

    littlewinterbride - isn’t Italy the best? Italians know how to live. Torino is my second favorite city, Milano being numero uno. If I ever move back to the states for good, I think I might be in trouble, cause there is no comparison to the italian lifestyle, esp. with food and wine. Glad you had the best time ever.

    Feather Love does Europe: the video! | the feather love photography blog - […] You can read my stream-of-consciousness summary on the entire crazy one-month trip HERE. […]

I drove up to the Catskills mountains from Brooklyn on Friday to shoot a wedding on Saturday. Because of the hurricane and how it was predicted to shut NYC down, I had my flight to Fiji changed to go out of Buffalo instead of JFK on Sunday. But, we got hit really hard by the storms in upstate NY- nobody expected it.  We ended up being in some of the worst flooding in the state. The freeways were shut down, we lost power, internet etc. And finally had to be evacuated to another town nearby. We literally raced the flood in our car before they closed the bridge down, otherwise we would have been stuck up in our hotel for another 2-3 days without power/phone/internet. From our beautiful Mount Tremper hotel (Emerson Resort), we evacuated to Kingston where we sort of camped out at the Holiday Inn with everyone else who was evacuated. That place ended up getting flooded too- a giant roaring river rose about 20 feet high up onto the building, completely covering an entire electrical box so half the hotel lost power too…

So anyways, I wasn’t able to make it to Fiji for my other wedding, which is a real bummer. We finally got out of the floods and drove back to Brooklyn Sunday evening. A 2.5 hour drive took about 6 hrs with all the closed freeways and all the people coming back to the city because they had initially escaped the hurricane to go upstate where it would be safe… Ha, funny thing is, the city was almost untouched by the storm!  So anyways, we’re safe and sound and all that.

I’m in Brooklyn for a few more days before I head off to London, if anyone wants to set up a shoot/ one-on-one workshop/ meeting etc, just shoot me an email! info@featherlove.com

This was the gorgeous place where the Catksills wedding took place… pics coming soon.

    Ross Dean - Keep Safe! RD

  • September 1, 2011 - 6:58 am

  • September 2, 2011 - 6:18 am

    Lee Anne - Noa I seriously can’t believe it – I’m so sorry about the Fiji wedding, I was looking forward, of course, to the images. In the meantime I can’t wait to see the Catskills wedding – I still cannot believe that I had to cancel working with you there for that “other” reason. Strange the way the universe works sometimes. Glad you’re safe and sending good vibes your way for the rest of the trip. xo

I’m on a one-month trip around the world that began yesterday when I landed in NY.

Self portrait. Brooklyn, NY. Teo’s apartment.

Next up is the Catskills mountians for a wedding, then straight to Fiji for another wedding. London after that for my Artist Workshop. And then off to Turin, Italy to see my old pal Patrick who I haven’t seen since I was 15 when we did some bad acid together in South Africa… Pappin (Son Of Shark Pig) is coming along to London and Italy to shoot our workshop and whatever else he gets his camera on. Remember the epic behind-the-scenes video he shot for my feature in Rue Magazine? Stuart is meeting us out in Italy (yay!) and then we’re going to try and go over to the French Riviera for a couple of days before coming back home. I am SUPER excited!

My absolute hands-down favorite inspiration/design/fashion/art blog is Morning Passages. Jessie and I have been “online lovers” (as she puts it) for 3 years now since we discovered each other and she posted this feature on my work a while back. So, of course, coming to Brooklyn, I knew I had to try to meet her in person. We met for a drink last night- she is even more rad and beautiful in person. Jessie also works for Lomogoraphy and we have some very cool stuff planned! She posted this on her blog today : )

In a beautiful strange coincidence, I also happened to have run into Shoko Wanger while I was hanging out on the street in Williamsburg last night! Shoko is the sweet, beautiful and talented writer that did the interview for my Dark Weirdo Rue Magazine feature, and we had never met in person before either. She recognized me on the street and we gave each other a huge hug – she’s so lovely!! Then Jessise and I talked about how gorgeous she was for, like, ever.

I am stayng with my best friend designer Teo Griscom of Unforeseen Circumstances here in Williamsburg. We all met up last night with Jessie, an old friend of mine from San Diego- Noelle, incredible Photographer Eric Kvatek who’s an old friend from Santa Fe, NM that I haven’t seen in 17 years, and his beautiful girlfriend, Bunny.

After that we went over to see my friend Jane Blevin– a cult icon in her own right/ incredible artists, designer & textile maker. I also hadn’t seen her in about 14 years since she left San Diego to go on her adventures. The first time I saw her was at my first Crash Worship show back in 97/98 (changed my life). What an epic creature she was on stage! Last night, until 4am, we had the most “ineffable” (her favorite word) time: listening to Jane’s stories about her burlesque days in New Orleans (Lady Jane was the FIRST burlesque show in this now-modern resurgence of the old performance art). She showed us her magical garden, built around the grave of her beautiful 3-legged dog Doodle, she made us cocktails and showed us all her photos & art: textiles, prints, and her beautiful illustrated poetry book (which made me cry and reminded me a LOT of the concept for my short film: The Alchemical Poisoning Of Magus Sherwood). Jane is one of the most fascinating, beautiful, talented and honest people I have ever met. A true artist. We got Blevinated.

I took photos of everyone on my film camera, so when I get back from this trip I will get it all developed and post. Heading to the Catskills tomorrow morning…

My photographer (Noa…) who shot the front & back covers for my new record “Driftwood”, played a very important role in defining my vibe. Artist of different mediums working together is a powerful thing. It’s a mark you leave in the world, even once you’re gone.”

On Emma Case Photography. “Noa Azouley-Sclater aka Feather love is a massive source of inspiration to me. The first time I saw her work was like an explosion went off in my head. The images had such strength and honesty. Although they captured beauty through a dreamlike fantasy, it also was filled with a gritty, dirty truthfulness. So unique and here’s that word again… ‘Brave’.. she was nothing like I had ever seen before or since for that matter. You feel the picture, you know its real and true to who Noa is. There is no gimmick or trend.”

    Julia - Holy moly, woman! Slow it down! Love your new portfolio site too. You’re going places.

This wedding was featured on 100 Layer Cake today!!

This was my second time in Medocino in a month- I had gone to shoot Eleisha & Josh’s sweet, intimate & beautiful wedding just a few weeks before and totally fell in love with that town– then I went back to shoot Andie & Bo’s gorgeous elaborate wedding 4 weeks later– and two weeks after that, I flew back out to shoot a wedding in Point Reyes Station, also in Northern California (that one is coming soon)… Jeez, I practically live in NorCal the past couple of years!

Once again we were so well taken care of-  thank you Andie & Bo! Plus there’s nothing more rad than a baby animal petting zoo (fyi- baby goats make the sweetest little sounds).

I run an artist workshop, focused primarily on understanding yourself as an artist, increasing your connection to your creativity, staying inspired & innovative etc. I cover blogging, the wedding industry, getting featured, getting clients you want, artistic integrity, artistic philosophy, breaking rules, and branding yourself along with your work. View my workshop page for upcoming workshops.

Upcoming Workshops:
