Textile designer and photographer Paola De Giovanni aka MeanMagenta has some great photography on Flickr.
She has some beautiful colour images of flowers and some very striking, moody architectural compositions, but for me it's her balck and white portraiture and reportage style photographs of people going about their everyday lives that appeals. Especially this series of her mother making a dress with her 50's sewing machine, they have so much character and charm...
Check out Paola's textile design and photography over on Flickr and keep up-to-date with her new work and inspirations at MeanMagenta.
