New Project: Exploring London
I’ve set myself a new challenge as part of a personal project as well as my final uni project. I want to explore London, and discover new places & spaces.
The main idea is to document different creatives across London, creative freelancers, or small businesses - anything ranging from artists (e.g. painter) to florists, independent cafe owners, fashion designers, etc.
I recently brainstormed some ideas on how to find people who would want their work/business documented, did a google search, and then suddenly realised that I’m in LONDON. What better way could there be than to actually go out and explore the city, and find places myself. I’m sure I’ll come across a ton of cool new places and areas that I didn’t know about yet. So exciting.
I could even create a little ‘guide to exploring London’ or a ‘London city guide’ - something like that.
What I love about the idea is that I actually challenge myself to go out and explore, AND make myself take my camera with me.
It’s easy to just get stuck in your daily routine, visit the same places over and over again, see the same areas, think you’ve already seen everything. But London is huge. There will be so much more to see.
If you’ve got a favourite place in London, I’d love to hear. It could be anything - cafe, shop, or just a certain area. And if you know creative people that wouldn’t mind being photographed, please do share as well. It would be a big help. :)
And if you want to join me on one of my ‘tours’ at some point, shoot me an email.
