I had this info sort of 'tucked away' in this I thought I'd give it a post of it's own.
At one time I had Anu's Tensiya photoshoots linked to her blog, but that link is now broken.
So I have loaded her little 'photostories' on each Bermann release into my Photobucket as individual
slideshows. It may not be as nice a presentation, but it still showcases her wonderful photos and
talented designs. :)


Info on Tensiya Bermann Releases 2005 - 2008

Timo was released through Tensiya run by Anu. He was a part of the 'Tensiya Bermann Project' where Anu partnered with Dollshecraft and re-released 33 SA ('slack afternoon, or lidded eyes) and 77 DO Bermanns (open eyed) as fullset themes to the international market. Anu styled all of the releases based on these different themes which involved clothing, faceups and wigs.

The Bermann Project began it's releases in 2005 with 2 groups of SA's.

I'm getting a message that says "This Album is Private" for all of them.

Any chance you might be up for putting them on Flickr?

I'm so glad that Anu's beautiful photographs were saved -- I wish that I'd had the presence of mind to do the same with all of the CustomHouse Uniques and Limiteds from days gone by!
