WANDERLUST

Towering behind a grass-covered amphitheatre, the remains of the Berlin Wall peer down over Mauer park’s wannabe pop stars strutting to an imaginry beat. Adorned with provocative art from all corners of the globe it cuts through the inner-city greenery like a concrete snake, history’s most revered division now acting as both a haunting reminder of humanities darkest hours and a popular canvas for modern social thought.

HDART

Blown highlights? Crushed blacks?? Chances are you’ve either borked the exposure, have your eyes closed, or have just reached the dynamic range limit that your device is capable of seeing. Employing bracketing, and to a greater extent merging the bracketed frames, will allow you to move beyond this limit. Your phone probably already has an HDR mode, try it out. Now interweave this technical wizardry with the power of memory, imagination, and passion and the artist in us can begin to recreate that moment the way we saw it with our mind’s eye.

Dancing shadows draw a maze of black twisting tunnels, blocked and barricaded by cave-ins and mutant trees. At the centre of this Tomb Raider puzzle stands a small stone carving surrounded by four passageways leading off every 90 degrees. None has a visible ending, each twisting off to oblivion and I suddenly forget which one I arrived in, they all look the same.
A casually calculated arrangment of canvas and washing lines blow in the relentless desert wind, unsettled people strewn across the blazing desert sands for as far as the eye can see. I quietly pick my way through the aging pavillion latticework, it’s populace looking on with interest as I make my way through this hallowed land. Red and white head-scarfs whip manically at shoulders, sandy eyes tracking me from beyond the gloom of tattered canvas. I’m vaguely aiming for the silhouette of a hill that I guess is the outskirts of Sweileh, but frankly I have no idea where I am.

The Ethiopian coffee highlands where china never rests

Ethiopia’s coffee is considered by many as the pinnacle of organic beans grown anywhere in the world. The Bhuna coffee ceremony is stitched in to Ethiopia’s fabric, with the smell of freshly roasted beans permeating every corner of this jewel in Africa’s crown. China, however, see less coffee and more revenue as they carve their way through the once lush rainforest, cutting huge swathes of land to build much needed transport routes. Not everyone, however, is in support of this government-driven initiative.

Ethiopia's Sidama celebrate Chambalaalla

Ethopia’s Sidama celebrate their annual new year, Fichee-chambalaalla, during a turbulent time in Ethiopia’s recent history. With no official geographic zone registered as belonging to the Sidama, a zone autonomous from the central federal government, a right for all people and nationalities wirtten in to the countries constitution, protests are rife in and around their claimed capital city, Awassa.
