six degrees of pia jane

Do you know the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon? Well I think I may have discovered my own version at Ariel Books on Friday night at the launch of Pia Jane Bijkerk's book, My Heart Wanders.

It was the evening of the Royal Wedding and it was an awfully wet night but undaunted, quite a throng gathered for some bubbles and a chance to meet Pia.

The lovely Pia.

Quite a queue formed for Pia to sign copies of her book, My Heart Wanders.

Champagne flowed and goodies were served by 2 charming French boys.

Once the speeches were over we left Ariel for some dinner at our favourite fish cafe, seacow. We recognised 2 of the ladies who'd been at the book launch and stopped for a chat. This is where I discovered the 6 degrees of Pia Jane Bijkerk.



I discovered Pia's blog about 18 months ago. She showed photos of Kylie Johnson's ceramics on her blog and I purchased some items online. When I learned Kylie was soming to Sydney Finders Keepers last year, I decided to visit. Kyle was a delight and when I asked if I could take photos of Paperboat Press, she agreed. From those photos I was asked to photograph Sydney Finders Keepers summer markets, where I photographed the elkhorn store run by Monique and her mother. How funny that I should connect with them through Pia?

Congratulations to Pia on the launch of her book. If Friday night was anything to go by, the book should be a raging success.

Bye for now,

Jillian

  2. Gorgeous photos Jillian - and I love these stories of 6 degrees in our amazing creative industry. I know Kylie too, so we're all connected. Maybe Kylie is the new Kevin Bacon!

  4. Hi Jillian. Lovely to meet you. And also to feast my eyes on your delicious food shots throughout your blog. I am a Sydney girl too and had my fair share of salami and cheese in that photo above :) Plus, that is me in the first photo of the first montage in this post - with the boots! Please come by my place too if you have time.

  10. Please come over and say hi. I think I'm invisible behind my camera, so I was so surprised to be recognised.
