Beauty has various shapes and meanings. You will feel something to be quite beautiful even if it is something that many would not notice and each of our definitions of beauty is different from one another. However, the photographer Bella Foxwell has found beauty in some uncommon thing and that is none other than doors.
She has been capturing the beauty of London indoors that many people walk past without paying attention. She is having an Instagram page titled The doors of London which feature a rainbow of facades that look like they are from a “Wes Anderson” Movie.
She wrote on her page that:
“I started this account about two and half years ago as a challenge. I’d spent the previous year building the accounts of big consumer brands and wanted to see if I could practice what I preached for myself. Since I was already obsessed with doors, it felt like a natural fit as my niche”.
Speaking further she explained the reasons which made her be fascinated about doors.
“it’s partly that I admire people who put so much pride into their front door, particularly those that are very daring, with a strong shade of paint of extravagant door knocker and it is partly that doors are very symbolic. Whether it is because they represent new opportunities, or because they remind of home. There is something special about them”.
“Over time I have come to learn what engages people and what doesn’t and unsurprisingly the brighter, more colorful doors framed by foliage tend to perform better. That’s a long-winded way of saying that unless a front door has something unique about it-like my front door, which is very inspiring, I will give it miss”.
Foxwell’s collection has over 38k followers and she says. “I usually do a little research into different locations first, and then head there with my phone to have a wander and see what I can find. The best feeling is when you stumble across a street full of gorgeous doors that you never knew existed. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s very exciting!”
