5 Minutes with… Aiya Feldman
Aiya is one of those stunning creatures you see, stop short and just can’t help but stare. She spends most of her time searching for mountain gems, conversing with radicals and capturing everything in between on an old Holga. You can catch a glimpse of her gypsy jewels on her blog www.loveisgreaterthanwitchcraft.tumblr.com or her photos on http://ganjabby.tumblr.com/
