My ‘Roman Holiday’ with A Square Visual Studio


Two weeks ago, I had my first encounter with ‘Indie Pop’ photography and I fell head over heels in love with this romantic photography style almost instantly.

Click to find out why. 🙂

‘Indie Pop’ photography (also known as 小清新) is a blend of dreamy and quaint photography styles. This new form of photography was incarnated by the the ‘Indie Pop’ culture of the the UK music industry in the 1980s. It was popular for chronicling the little things in one’s life through refreshing, gentle and positive music themes. Later, this interesting sub-culture expanded its influence to the movie and photography industry.

A few photography houses in the region have jumped on the bandwagon and adopted this new style of photography and one of them is A Square Visual Studio from Singapore.

They approached me a month ago to take part in their ‘The Pavilion of Dreams’ project that features young popular and fashionable people with big dreams. The purpose of the project is to capture the dreams and stories of these youths through their lenses.

I gaped when I saw their criteria – popular, fashionable and young?! Seems a little far-fetched for me… But of course I was incredibly happy and said yes! 😀

I’m a huge Audrey Hepburn fan and since my numero uno is traveling, the photoshoot naturally took on a Roman Holiday theme (without the vespa unfortunately).

Yeah. You get the picture.

Now welcome to my ‘Roman Holiday’…

So what do you think?

Honestly, I thought the folks at A Square did a great job. I’ve never see this side of me before – the soft and feminine side. Haha! Thanks ladies!

Oh yes! Did I mention that the owners of A Square Visual Studio are two very beautiful and brainy (NUS PhD holding) girls?

This series of photos are only Part One of my Roman Holiday.

Part Two features the other love of my life – Bebe (my bunny) and will be showcased on my next photography post.

Till next time!

Your friend, Juliana
