Amanda Jasnowski (@hokaytokay)

Amanda Jasnowski (@hokaytokay) Interview

“Like Knows Like” is a superb documentary project, founded by photographer Marije Kuiper and filmmaker Bas Berkhout. This latest episode is a profile on photographer Amanda Jasnowski, better known to the Instagram world as @hokaytokay.

I often wander around on Instagram looking for new work and this funny thing happens time and time again. I scroll down to some older photos buried deep in this person’s feed, and there’s one photo that catches my eye. So I click to leave a friendly comment, and I find the most positive uplifting encouraging message has already been posted! And it’s from Amanda.

It’s been amazing to watch Amanda’s work evolve and her following expand. If you’re a photographer (or anyone) trying to figure out how to survive doing your own thing you could learn a lot from her.

Artist painter Brendan Donleavy

I met several artists while I was out in New York on the weekend, one of them was Brendan Donleavy. He doesn’t have a whole lot of work online at the moment but keep an eye on him. There’s a few more images below but they don’t do his work justice as he likes to go pretty large!
