#GambiaDoors – ’Isolation’ (working title)… the next step.

For sometime, I’ve been mulling over where to go with my Gambia Doors photography prints series (including #DisappearingMalta). 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 Gambia Doors. Helen Jones-Florio
