As a lover of travel I can spend hours trawling through Pinterest and Instagram checking out photos from people’s adventures. Several of my friends are photographers by trade and I can never get enough of their images, as they seem to capture moments in time so wonderfully.
With this in mind I decided to launch this new ‘Memories from…’ series to showcase not only mine and Emma’s photos, but also those of some of our talented friends.
And so, for the inaugural post, let me pass you over to Mei Catherall to introduce his photo essay of Tunisia…
Memories from Tunisia
“On 4 August 2015, Tunisia was given the unenviable title of ‘the most dangerous country in the world’ in a YouGov poll of over 7,000 people. Yet during my visit to Sousse and Monastir in the autumn of 2012, the Arab Spring having taken effect, the feeling was one of hope and renewal. These pics aimed to capture the Zeitgeist. Unfortunately they were just an island of calm.”
