Tomorrow I head off to England until the end of April. I will be staying at L'Abri in Greatham for most of my time abroad. What is L'Abri you ask? Good question. I, myself, don't really know. It makes it a little frustrating when trying to explain it to others, but at the same time I find it kind of liberating to be entering into this undefined space.
I will be doing an independent study at L'Abri, but by no means is it a traditional school.
I will be tucked away in the English countryside living in an old manor in a tiny town. Rough, I know.
I will be unplugged and disconnected most of the time.
I will take refuge and be silent and I will probably do a lot of thinking and maybe even a touch of photography.
And when I bring out my camera, it will not be digital. I am taking it all the way back to the Mamiya 645 Medium Format Camera- she is a beast and I am kind of really excited.
I want to take this time to pause and I want to take this opportunity to really decide what it is I want to do with photography. It will be a challenge to only have 72 exposures for three months, especially when I can take 72 pictures on my digital camera in less than 15 minutes. It will be a challenge but I think it is a good challenge to face.
So here is to a spot of tea and new undefined adventures!
I wont really have access to my email but once a week, so forgive me if it takes a bit longer to respond to any inquires!
This blog will be go dormant for a while, but I think it might make a pretty spectacular re-entry so stay tuned!
