Once upon a time, Tom Wolff cycled 10,000km from Alaska to Mexico. During his time in the Pacific Northwest, he hitched a ride on a boat with Captain Tom Gray – an eccentric academic and lifetime commercial fisherman who taught him about the symbiosis between salmon and the forests.

“All I had to do in exchange for my five-day passage was, “dress a few fish and drink a whole lotta coffee”. I made an effort to look like I knew what Tom meant when he talked about “dressing” a fish, even though I’d made it clear I’d never set foot on a commercial fishing boat before. “You’ll be fine”, Tom replied unfazed.”

If you’re using a digital SLR and still have some analogue lenses – rejoice. You can enjoy quality of your legacy lenses on your digital camera. There are a few consideration to keep in mind, but the creative possibilities far outweigh the restrictions.

“With the appropriate lens adapter, it’s easy to convert just about any legacy lens to your current system and open up an entirely new photographic world without needing to spend a fortune.”

Environmental scientist and photographer Jon Collins recently returned from a trip to Oman where he discovered the lifeblood of the desert, and saw how younger Omanis are adopting new technology while proudly upholding ancient values.

“Despite having a mobile phone, a generator for his family home and a Jeep to herd his camels, Ahmad’s life still revolved around the ancient traditions of the Bedouin people. He and his brothers travel 1000 kilometres on foot through the Empty Quarter to Salalah for trade every year.”


Russian photographer Kati Turkina was completely consumed by her grandfather’s passion for photography. Her latest series uses photography as a means of time travelling to recapture her childhood in Essentuki.

“I took this image because I had a particular memory from my childhood when I was 10 or 11. We went to the swimming pool and my grandmother, she was spoiling me in a really bad way. She loved me to eat ice cream while I was swimming and she was treating me like I was a princess. It was a great time for me because no one treated me like that after that.”
