Throwaways is something that I have been conceptualizing for a very long time. The premise is quite simple: go to a cool place. take photos in said place with a disposable camera. post the photos, here – untouched& unaltered (untitled & unmastered as well, word to Kendrick Lamar). Something about a disposable film picture just has that perfectly timeless appeal to it.

Basically, I saw my good friend (and AMAZING photographer) Thomas Kempster do something similar with his website a few years ago in Hong Kong, and as someone with very minimal photography experience, I figured this watered down version of the project would be ideal for my travels. Besides the fact that I don’t know the first thing about a camera, and that I am more than broke, the real reason for this series was that I thought ‘throwaways’ was such an amazing pun for photos taken on a ‘disposable’ that I had to do it.


Brisbane was quite an experience to say the least. It was our first Australian city, but we were blessed with not only having Madi as a recognizable face & tour-guide right off of the plane, but we also stayed in an amazing (/air conditioned… basically the only criteria for ‘amazing’) hostel, made our first few friends and acquaintances in fellow travelers, and had our first few good times.

Beers, friends, and dance battles quickly became the theme of the tour. I wouldn’t change a second of it. (Oh, and I even got my the 2nd sunburn of my entire life! Wouldn’t change that, either.)
