1. Berlin: Layers of History

    Date 30 Apr 2015
    Berlin is my favourite city in the world. If that sounds like the syntax of a giddy 6-year-old, then you’d be partly right. I have been known to grin like one at the thought of going back to Germany, before returning to the sad realisation I am stuck at home for…

  2. A Walk in the (Leitz) Park

    Date 27 Apr 2015
    Late last year, I was lucky enough to undertake a pilgrimage to one of the holy sites of photography: Leitz Park in Wetzlar. The recently-opened complex is home to state-of-the-art production facilities for Leica Camera, in addition to three other related companies: Leica’s cine-focused sister company CW Sonderoptic, parts manufacturers…

  3. Film Review: Lomography Lady Grey 400 35mm

At the same time, airports can be considered as…

  5. Travelling with Film, Part I: The Gear

    Date 15 Feb 2015
    61 days, 21 cities, 9 countries, 76 rolls of film. These were an amazing two months on the road (well, rails more often than not) with all the sights, sounds and intellectual stimulation that only Europe can provide. But when I tell people I shot 76 rolls of film, they…

  6. On the Road Again

    Date 05 Nov 2014
    For the next few weeks, I’ll be in Europe, mixing up business with pleasure and study with leisure. It’s a strange sensation, going away to another continent, yet feeling as connected as ever via social media. This is something I want to actively avoid. Devices, as useful as the can…
