Meiko's world

Ah... mix tapes... I remember when me and my friends used to make them for each other, writing little notes or doodling on the sleeves inside the casette boxes and sending them by post! Sharing playlists electronically won't ever have the same charm. Came across Meiko Takechi Arquillos's work on a particularly miserable early autumn day and it made me smile.  So thought I'd post it here.  Sometimes we need a bit of colourful exuberance and I think Meiko's work offers that. Meiko is based in LA so probably doesn't experience heavy rain-laden grey skies too often. She's also very good at shooting kids in a very natural unassuming way, capturing kids being kids.
