Going back hundreds of years, along this coastline, people have collected oysters from the tentacles of the mangroves, which flank River Gambia…the tributaries are great sites for the oysters to grow. Oyster harvesting is traditionally a female-driven process – from collection, preparation,  to selling of the oysters… hear more from Jason Florio as he talks to Neal James of Photography Daily Show/Photowalk (approximately 00:28.50 mins in)

Doors – I have a slight obsession with doors and facades. These images form part of a much wider collection of images taken over many years, particularly in West Africa. Regardless of where I travel to, for work or play, my archive continues to grow!  #DisappearingMalta is also another extensive collection. As featured in the Times of Malta

The doors and facades that often catch my eye are the ones I see as works of art. And, like most art, they are not perfect. There is beauty in the imperfections, the misspelt typography, a playfulness in the graphic design – intentional or not. But, the busy surroundings perhaps detract the eye from seeing these finer details. Therefore, isolating the doors and facades has always seemed the most obvious next step. I’m really enjoying the creative process of working on this new stage of my back catalogue of doors and facades.
