Linear Desire is an editorial featuring designs by Kika Knaup that tells the story of softness and sensuality while immersed in urban downtown exploration of architecture and linear culture. All locations were scouted organically while shooting in and around Oakland, CA. With simple yet bold garments, lack of shoes and accessories and a muted color scheme, we gave greater focus to mood and the parallels between subject and environment.


The set of photographs within New Age Nostalgia are about bridging gaps between a modern day lifestyle and our ancestral pasts. It tells a story of deep rooted history and culture and its penetrating vibrance while living in a new age. By fusing minimalist street styling themes, rich traditional locations such as San Francisco’s Chinatown, and wistful fashion illustration, my all girl team and I were able to create a dream-like multimedia mesh of then and now.
