TRIP – Sheffield: City Centre

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 After a couple of laps around Park Hill I spent some time wandering around Sheffield City Centre, wasting time until my scheduled train back to London. It was an unexpectedly warm day and I had dressed for the cold, so I was a bit over it and […]

TRIP – Sheffield: Park Hill

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 I decided to write my MA dissertation on photography of brutalist buildings, including Park Hill in Sheffield. I was lucky enough to receive funding to cover my train ticket to Sheffield in order to visit the local archive and to see the estate for myself. The part […]

TRIP – Cambridge 2015

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 On a cold winters day in 2015 I travelled to Cambridge for the first time, taking a shaky hand and a low film speed with me. I think the allure of £1 film was misguided, and many of my rolls of Agfa Vista 200 came out with […]

TRIP – Rome 2015

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 In 2015 I made the mistake of visiting Rome in the heat of summer. It was convenient because a friend from Australia was passing through, but the amount of time we spent running back to the apartment to sit under the air-conditioning kind of took away from […]

TRIP – Margate 2016

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Kodak 400 Ultramax I took a day trip to Margate to visit Turner Contemporary, a gallery I had heard so much about. They had an exhibition on which I wanted to see, but now cannot recall what it was. But I do know that I enjoyed it. It was a […]

TRIP – Hastings 2017 pt.1

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 After visiting Bexhill I hopped on a quick train to Hastings, where I spent the rest of my day out. I enjoyed the recently awarded pier, which is now unfortunately in some trouble financially. It was such a contract to the cluttered piers with amusements that you […]

TRIP – Bexhill 2017

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 For a long time I had wanted to visit Bexhill to see the De La Warr Pavilion, a great example of modern architecture. I was lucky enough to have a bright and sunny November day for my trip, something rare when visiting the British seaside, especially in […]

TRIP – Oxford 2014

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 While not many of the photos from this roll of film came out, some of them are still among my most favourite all these years later. I remember feeling that something was wrong with the winding of the film, and the final frame consists of many, many […]

TRIP – Ghent 2017

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 Ghent may not be high on everyone’s list of places to visit, but as someone who has studied art history I knew I wanted to visit it for a while. Like an art historian’s pilgrimage, I wanted to see the Ghent Altarpiece, painted […]

TRIP – Brussels 2017

CAMERA: Olympus TRip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 I have wanted to travel to Brussels for a long time. I bought a Wallpaper guide to Brussels at least a year or two ago, so I devised a plan to visit it this summer on my own. I decided to go alone […]

TRIPS – Brighton 2017

CAMERA: Holga 120 CFN, Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Kodak Portra 400, Instax Mini colour film Brighton was one of those places that people talked about all the time and is super easy to get to from London, yet it took me over 3.5 years of living here to actually get down there. I […]

TRIP – Stonhenge & Salisbury 2016

I had been to Stonehenge in 2010 with family but I jumped at the chance (and onto the coach) when the opportunity arose in 2016 to visit again with friends, and to go to Salisbury as well. I found a very expired film in my drawer and decided to take my Holga along, as it […]

TRIP – s’Hertogenbosch & Amsterdam 2016

In 2016 I took my first trip to the Netherlands to visit ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Amsterdam. My dad’s family is from Holland, so I had always wanted to visit the country, but an exhibition on the work of Heironymous Bosch was the main thing that made me book my tickets. I fell instantly in love with […]
