This brief was set in my Design class and encompasses my travel + ‘observations of life’ photos. They are shot in Australia, Singapore, the Greek Islands and Greece. Three of my favourite places to be curious in. If you have any feedback, questions or general commentary – let me know. Design and composition are critical components in photography and through this class I’ve learnt to really think about these aspects when setting up the frame.

If you know of any fellow photojournalists or great design-types would love to hear about them.

Stay curious,

LD
