I came across Sivian Askayo’s photography some time last year when her Intimacy Under the Wires project–photographs of people’s laundry drying all around the world– was bouncing about the web.

She also has some stunning travel photography. In a world where everyone and their mother seems to have some device with which to snap a quick photo while on vacation, talent like hers still shines.

By the way, she’s entirely self-taught. Yeah. Now let’s all go do something equally impressive with our day.
