While on my travels, I’ve worked on a few different photographic projects.

Letter written in 1937 from The Hakone Hotel

During a trip to Japan I visited Hakone, in search of the hotel my grandmother’s friend Freda stayed in during her honeymoon in 1937.

Trees early morning in the Calcutta Botanical Gardens

I first came across the Victorian botanical artist and traveller Marianne North while wandering around Kew Gardens with a friend, when we stumbled into her gallery to seek shelter from the light autumn rain. When I visited the Marianne North Gallery for a second time, a few years later, I realised that in the interim I too had travelled to many of the places she depicts. I’d also moved to Norfolk, where Marianne spent much of her childhood at the family home in Rougham.
