come away with me

November 12, 2020

Travel may not be a comfortable or a viable option for many of us right now, but that shouldn’t get in the way of us dreaming about our next destination, or reminiscing about adventures gone by. Memories and goals can be fuel for the soul. Just thinking about swimming in salty Greek waters buoys me, as does imagining myself one day walking the remote highlands of Guatemala. Just before we went into lockdown, we were on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my Mum. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve basked in the memory of beach walks, ocean swims and crab claw dinners. “My travel memories are where I go,” echoed my friend, Buket on a sunny walk around UofT yesterday. Here, photographer, Romain Laprade shares his travel memories from Venice, Los Angeles and Joffre Lakes. What I love about the images is how emblematic they are of their location. A giant cactus in Joshua Tree, a sidewalk in New York, orange mooring buoys floating in the Ibiza sea. His photographs are simple and unpretentious, and capture the essence of where he is.
