Being able to tell stories without using so many words has always been a field of interest for me personally and I think that is what has attracted me to photography along the years. Still images, saying so much effortlessly, capturing beauty as well as provoking a “yearn” to be present at the time, the location of the event, Nostalgia.
On one of my many searches for captivating photos, I came across this website and went ahead to check for the owner’s instagram page and I took a liking to her work.
