23 | work work work.

I recently landed a new job, a position that is actually a first for me. ¬†Great company, great benefits and a relaxed environment, what more could I ask for? Even with these positives, I am worried about getting the balance between a working schedule and creating time to spend on personal/creative endeavours. It’s only withinContinue reading “23 | work work work.”

21 | look for it.

My last post which took great inspiration from the late John Berger was the first stepping stone into looking at observational work.

I recently came back from what was technically my first solo trip. Hardly an adventure, when you consider it’s less than hour away by flight but give me some credit; it’s something that I completely undertook by myself. As of late, my interests have been geared towards discovering and entering the world of Afro-Europeans. MyContinue reading “8 | paris.”
