I started this blog to share thoughts and images when I left four stable years in Toronto for India on May 8th, 2010. That trip lasted 3 months and also took me through Turkey and Iran before I moved to Stockholm to begin my master’s in Human Geography.
For my second year of courses and thesis research, I found an exchange program with a university in Lima. It fed my fascination with Peru and also led me to cross South America on land twice in 2012. After graduating in June 2013, I left Sweden for the west coast of Canada in search of surf. Since December I have been back where I originally began, in Toronto.
East of Heart is about attempting to document the everyday reality of other cultures and my own search for attachment: to places, people and ideas. I use my camera as a tool to focus on the essence of a moment, a place, and awareness of my emotional response to it. My pictures are mostly captured with my cherished Nikon D300 through a fixed 24 or 35mm lens. The site runs on WordPress and wears a modified version of the Imbalance theme from WPShower.
Please contact me at email@example.com with any questions, comments or deliberations of your own that you’d like to share, I would love to hear from you!
