Portraits of: Barcelona

Jesi has been moving around the world for the past two years. She had been a chef for eight months on a ship for a French family which docked on the shores of Barcelona, and here she is for now, till her next calling. Originally from New Zealand, she moved to Australia upon graduation with a group of friends, working in a cafe for over two years. According to her, it is utterly normal to pack your bags and leave for elsewhere – she only found a job upon reaching Melbourne! It’s no surprise then that she’d like to have her own cafe doubling up as an art gallery sometime in the future. Name: Jesi Beaton And your dream?

                                                                       Barcelona, 2013 (Fuji Neopan 400) This is Marta, who I met at a couchsurfer’s meeting in the Gràcia neighbourhood. She has started working and living in the heart of the city, and told me about the intricacies of her scientific pursuits.
