About Laura

Life is what we make of it. Travel is the traveler. What we see isn’t what we see but what we are.
― Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

I never know what to write here

Hi, my name is Laura. Since a few years I am taking pictures under the name of Galaxies & Dust on instagram (more up-to-date) and deviantArt (where it all started).
I was never really able to stick to one specific genre because there's still too much to discover, experience and learn. So I guess I'm just someone who looks out for the beautiful things in life and tries to preserve them in any form.

but here's what I care about

Shadows, reflections, mirrors, huge puddles and dirty windows. Especially dirty windows.

The Cure, Frightened Rabbit, Daughter, Joy Division, The Smiths. Just to name a few.

Books. Books! Some of my favorite books are: Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, The Shadow of the Wind, Jane Eyre, Harry Potter (well, all of them..), The Name of the Wind, Solanin, Eating Animals and Escape Everything!. Only last year I've discovered how engaging non-fiction can be. Currently, I'm mostly interested in topics such as veganism and animal rights, ethics & philosophy, feminism, fair fashion, minimalism, zero waste etc. Take a look at my annual reading lists. (Oh, I also love making random lists about very important stuff.)

Sloths, cats, pigs, ducks, sheep (animals in general), tea, my starfield simulation light, minimalism, quotes, typography and all things turquoise.
