After two intense days doing this workshop at Photo Week 2018, I am so full of new ideas and inspiration that I feel almost hung over. I have so many stories and artists I want to share, but I don't want to overwhelm my page  - maybe I'll release some of this inspiration gradually in coming issues of my newsletter. 

Anyway, for today's inspiration, I want to share the work of documentary photographer Hicham Gardaf. Hicham is of Moroccan origin and focuses on topics related to urbanisation and identity specifically in his home country. The image above is my favourite from his collection titled "Intersections" which explores city 'fringes and borders' and their coexistence with contemporary society. I love the mood and the feel of Hicham's work and you can view more of the project here
