I have always been obsessed with travelling and experiencing new cultures and lifestyles and find the huge contrasts within this world so fascinating. I am planning on writing my dissertation next year (planning ahead a bit, I know, keeno!) on the tourist and the imagery of exotic countries, and the reality of what these countries are really like. Anyway, more on that another time, but I am constantly finding sources and articles about this topic at the moment, and to my joy this months (January) Vogue has a beautiful spread looking back in the archives of their photography from all over the world. There are some beautiful images and breath-taking pictures of so many different landscapes from as far back as the 1920’s! If you haven’t seen the feature already, here it is:
This just makes me want to go to all of these places and see them for myself!
