Rome.

Around this time last year me, my parents and my little sister took a trip to Rome for a long weekend.

I was already in love with Italy but the country’s capital is so magical that you can’t help but fall in love a little more. There is something about the way Rome’s architecture takes you through time all the while the city goes on with modern life.

One of my favourite parts of the trip was visiting the Colosseum. Looking into the Colosseum is fascinating, you find yourself imagining what it would have been like to be viewing the gladiatorial contests in such a huge space, it’s incredible to just think about; to actually be inside is something else. Not only is it great to look inside of, but its also amazing to look out of. To be taken back into history and then to look out and see modern city life, with Rome’s residents going on with their normal day to day business, is a serious incredible experience. A piece of history, slap bang in the middle of Rome. There honestly is nothing like it.

Here are photos from the trip.

London – Soho.

The Photographers’ Gallery in Soho London has become a regular spot to visit with my Dad. With exhibitions changing almost every month, a great cafe to drink coffee and people watch and a book store full of photography books. It’s everything I love wonderfully packed into one.

This months exhibition is called: Human Rights Human Wrongs.

Feb 6th – April 6th

“The exhibition spans a time frame from 1945 until the early 90s and examines the major political upheavals, conflict, war and struggles against racism and colonisation that became especially urgent following World War II.”

It was a very hard hitting exhibition,I was almost crying at one point, but also very insightful into the goings on in the world which are not always brought to our immediate attention.

Also being displayed is Charlotte Dumas – Anima and The Widest Prairies

Feb 6th – April 6th

The exhibitions in the gallery are always beautifully displayed and I am yet to be disappointed.

Taking a leap of faith.

Photography. One of my biggest interests. Heavily influenced by my dad with his own interest in the art of photography and his own mission to master the art itself, he’s had a camera for as long as I can remember, I was compelled to be a part of it. The beauty, the mystery, the stories. Everything that photography is, I wanted my own little piece of.

Two years ago I asked for a camera of my own and it has been one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. I was no longer looking at photographs. I started capturing them myself.

I’ve wanted to put my own photographs out there for a while so I decided to take a leap of faith and just do it.

So here, after hunting through my two years worth of photographs, from the very beginning up until now are some of my own personal favourite photographs that I have taken.
