sivan askayo photography

by Grace Bonney

Sometimes I wish I could trade lives with D*S editor Anne Ditmeyer for a day. She’s one of the bravest and most talented women I know, and she’s been living in Paris long enough to fool me into thinking she’s a native Parisian. She sent over a link to photographer Sivan Askayo’s work and knew exactly which series I would love: the laundry photos. Anne interviewed Sivan for her “Boarding Pass” column, but I wanted to share these gorgeous photos to start the day on a light, breezy note. It’s easy to get bogged down in cold weather and work this time of year, but these photos remind me of a sunnier time, when the summer air makes just about anything look beautiful floating around.
