Lucia Holm goes by the moniker Miss Lulu & The Teaspoon Shortage on Flickr, and has quickly become one of my favorite photographers. I stumbled upon her gritty yet beautiful self portraiture work quite some time ago and was taken aback. She has a very unique style combining desaturated palettes and rough textures with soft curves and bold color accents. She also makes a wonderful subject herself, the topmost photo above is absolutely perfect. So 70s.
Her work dances on the line of retro and modern alternative, which is an aesthetic I have always liked. Check out her extensive portfolio at Miss Lulu & The Teaspoon Shortage.
