Maile Lani is a 21-year-old musician (pianist), poetess, diary writer, and budding photographer who currently resides in the frozen north of Canada somewhere between the Eskimos and the maple syrup farms. She spends most of her free time composing music for the poetry she writes with the ambition of one day writing music for films. When it comes to photography, she is obsessed with trying to capture the idea of the subject rather than simply the subject itself, believing that ‘implied thoughts are infinitely better than direct ones’. She says of herself, ‘I can’t draw. I can however doodle, scribble, scratch, and splatter paint on my nails. so due to my lack of drawing talent I take pictures instead’.
