A few of my all-time favourites, from almost four years of shooting doors and storefronts in Malta. As of June 2019, they are all still standing… so far.

#DisappearingMalta

vestiges of a small Mediterranean Island

To find my bearings, I walked… and I walked. It’s the only way that I know to get a real sense of any place I’ve ever landed in. So, leaving the vast concrete and glass apartment complex, perched on a peninsula, I turned down one narrow side-street after another – off the main drag of Sliema – and the true architectural beauty of Malta began to reveal itself… Helen Jones-Florio / Times of Malta

O.K. … ‘Binett’s Library’ is not exactly in Valletta… but, look at what a beauty it is!

This thing I have for doors never seems to abate, wherever I find myself. For daily photo updates, follow me on Instagram @doors_facades_florio.

Touray was jailed for protesting during the Yahya Jammeh regime. An environmental activist, he was pulled from his house by President Jammeh’s henchman and jailed for protesting against illegal sand mining, run by Jammeh’s brother, that was having a devastating environmental impact and also destroying ladies vegetable gardens in Habib’s village.
