I discovered Claire Cottrell’s work one day while I was scrolling through one of my favorite reads, A Piece Apart’s “Woman” series, and have since found myself completely taken with her images. The tell-tale graininess of aged film, the emphasis on unconventional architecture, oddly beautiful composition and quirky yet relatable female subjects make for a big dose of inspiration.

There’s something romantic and whimsical about her work and I could pour through her shots for hours, gathering tidbits of inspiration to build upon at a later date — it’s one of my favorite pastimes. Muted colors, modern spaces and a roster of impressive accolades lend to the uniqueness of Claire’s photographs. I hope you’ll take a moment this week to check out her work and get inspired for the days ahead but in the meantime, here are a few of my favorites.
