A History of AREKU (in pictures)

Since it’s Thursday today, so I found it fit to do a post as a part of the #TBT – Throwback Thursday.
Here’s a couple of pictures of yours truly AREKU, from various passages in my life.

2008 – It was at this time I began to let my hair grow out longer.  And began to get a sense for “style”.
I’ve just began making my own music, so I needed a suitable picture for my MySpace-page.
(Yeah I know, it’s been a while.. MySpace.. I do actually still have a page there: https://myspace.com/arekuofficial)

Regarding style, at this time one could describe my fashion sense as “aristo punk” – think The Hives meets A Clockwork Orange at the goth  Batcave Club.

2009 – Now my hair had grown quite a bit, and I began drinking coffee on a daily basis.  Two facts that are most likely unrelated to each other.
A bit later the same year, I tried out having a sidecut.  And got my first piercing.

I was also rarely seen without my Minolta Maxxum. Shot so many rolls of film with that one..

And so my hair went a bit short again.

My photography got a bit more experimental:

This is the shortest my hair have been in a long time.  It was also this year I formed what would later on become AVALINITY.
And got some more piercings.
And stretched my ear (same as now: 10 mm)
