The first blog post of 2019 is dedicated to a favourite hobby and an restless thirst; travelling. Back in March of 2018, I went on a roadtrip through Tuscany’s vine fields and pebbly towns with some girlfriends. Nearly a year later, I came across the photographs I took and wondered what I should do with them. Perhaps I can write about which route we took or life on the road yet sometimes I like to let the images do the talking.
This is a collection of images I took that go beyond Thessaloniki's famous White Tower, to an observation of its urban element and how the locals experience it. Focusing on the city's textures; marble, concrete, water, and stone, this photo essay shows how to alternatively observe Thessaloniki. Through noticing how the locals interact with the cityscape, we gain a peek into its history and culture.
