A Year on the Road: White Sands, NM

read
At play in the world's largest sandbox

White Sands National Monument in New Mexico has always been a place of wonder to me, both before and after I visited it. It is a desert, not of sand, but of glimmering white gypsum crystals forming 275 square miles of towering dunes, making it the largest concentration of gypsum in the world. Exiting the road, I drove until the concrete faded into white. Cameras in hand, I started climbing and......read more

A Year on the Road: Prinzessinnen-Garten

This community garden is the green lung of urban Berlin

Imagine a modern city where natural resources are protected and conserved, food and inspiration are shared commodities, and every spare urban space is used to let biodiversity and fresh food thrive. This is the future that Marco Clausen and Robert Shaw have imagined for Berlin, Germany. They were so inspired by Cuba’s “agricultura urbana” that they broke ground at Moritzplatz in......read more

A Year on the Road: Above the San Juans

A misty flight over Washington's emerald islands

For 4 years now, I have been dreaming of exploring the 450 islands that make up the San Juans. I knew this year marked my moment to finally visit as they have just been declared a National Monument. In Obama's words, the islands are “a refuge of scientific and historic treasures and a classroom for generations of Americans.”  Home to bald eagles, orca whales, harbor......read more

A Year on the Road: A Farm in Italy

Visiting a sheep farm in medieval Abruzzo

Life in the rugged mountains of Central Italy is much like anywhere else in the country, but a little bit more wild and a lot less visited. As you enter the landscape of deep valleys and towering mountains, this becomes all the more apparent as does its profound beauty. I borrowed a car to mill around in and soon found myself chatting with locals in a restaurant in the center of a small town......read more

A Year on the Road: Brooklyn Grange Farm

read
A rooftop farm thrives just beyond the Manhattan skyline

A few years ago, a sprawling urban farm was started in one of the most improbable places of all: Queens, NY. On top of the mammoth Standard Motor Products Building, ground broke and an acre was cultivated using over a million pounds of soil to supply local restaurants, shops and foodies with fresh, organic produce.  As the last days of the summer season loomed, I ventured out to Brooklyn......read more

A Year on the Road: Great Point Lighthouse

A sandy excursion to the northernmost tip of Nantucket

Merely a dot on the map, Nantucket was once one of the world's biggest whaling ports. Great Point Lighthouse stands proudly at the edge of the island, the first shining beacon leading into the east coast ports. The lighthouse keeper's daughter, lighting the lamp for her father, wrote in 1937 that she felt as though she was "helping God" guide mariners to shore.  During an end of summer......read more

A Year on the Road: Apple Annie's Orchard

Making the most of Arizona's bountiful apple season

The fruits of the autumn season have ripened across the United States over the last few months. Having missed apple season on the East Coast by a matter of weeks, I decided to find an apple orchard in my unlikely location - Arizona. Little could I imagine what I'd find once I started looking. During a stopover in Tucson for some car repairs, I decided to venture out one Sunday in search of the......read more

A Year on the Road: Abstract Autumn

Capturing nature's last brilliant show of color

Autumn has always called on me as a photographer to get out and document the fleeting vibrancy of the changing leaves and shifting season. Like many photographers, expeditions into nature during this time can yield some of the most spectacular images of the year.  A few weeks ago, I ventured into a thickly wooded forest to photograph the best of the show. Having sorted through image after......read more

Stepping back into sustainable Victorian England

Hailing from Norfolk, England, I can’t help but have a sense of pride, especially when it comes to matters of sustainability. With a rich history, I can really nerd out on this stuff. Let's start with the 1700s, when 2/3 of the region was being used to grow food. Throughout the next century, Norfolk farmers gained a reputation for their progressive farming techniques, inspiring English......read more

London Design Festival celebrates its 12th birthday this year, and the goal of its founders Sir John Sorrell and Ben Evans to show off the capital’s creative talents across product, furniture and graphic design is being realised more superbly than ever. While I can’t admit to having been there in its youth, I’m taking this opportunity to revisit those festivals I have had the......read more
