Imprints At Home and Away

Even though the blog has been relatively quiet over the last few months, I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on my new project, my new etsy shop featuring travel photography. Its name is Imprints at Home and Away and it’s finally ready and open for business!

Living in Dubai made me think a lot about what makes a house on the other side of the globe feel like home. None of my friends was from Dubai and most had plans to leave at some point. With such a transient and diverse population, I really enjoyed seeing how people chose to decorate their home. Inevitably, people displayed little clues about where they were from and where they’d visited. I think even if a house is temporary, we all like to be surrounded by objects that remind us of the intangible imprints that meaningful places leave on us.

These thoughts and preparing the photos for my blog posts eventually led to the idea of opening the etsy shop. About half of the photographs featured are from the Middle East. The other half are from Europe and North America. There is a good mix of expected shots and less predictable shots, and a variety of subject matter: landscapes, street photography, architecture, a bit of food photography and lots of pretty doors. 🙂

I ship internationally and I’ll be adding more photos regularly. I hope you’ll check it out here and please consider sharing the shop or individual prints on social media. Thank you so much!

Below is a sample of photos in the shop. (The frames are provided for illustrative purposes only – I sell unmatted, unframed prints for easier shipping and to give the customer more flexibility in how they display the print.)
