Westbound Sign is my ongoing travel photography project.
When I was five or six, my mum bought me an atlas almost as tall as me. I spent days poring over maps and the country blurbs in the back, memorising facts like populations, life expectancies, religions and capital cities. Then I'd imagine how those populations lived, or what those capital cities looked like. I'd never been on holiday and had no internet then, so I thought I'd never find out. Now I have and of course, being a photography graduate, I take photos for others like that kid with the atlas wondering what the world looks like, or for anyone who enjoys them.
