Having spent my early twenties backpacking around the world, including an insanely epic six months blissfully lost in India, I can really appreciate the stunning images over on travel photographer and writer Abbie Kemp‘s website. A saturated visual portfolio, vibrant colour, moments, faces, people, places beautifully captured.
Abbi is now based in the Middle East, and she has an incredibly rich and varied portfolio of work, having been featured in The Sunday Times, Urban Outfitters, The Guardian & Vogue Italia. But none is as impressive as her down and dirty adventures on the photographic trail, including a stint with an NGO in Rio de Janeiro’s largest favela, Rocinha, escapades through the Colombian Amazon to capture images of wildlife & indigenous tribes for the recent Whitley Award winner – Entropika, and extensive travels through to Colombia, Peru, Bolivia & Argentina.
Since then she’s travelled to the French Alps, wandered through the streets of Spain, Cuba, Italy & Morocco, driven 5000km from Cape Town to Angola and suffered heat stroke & altitude sickness in India. Her most recent trip was to the Southern Omo Valley, Ethiopia, where Abbi spent time photographing the various tribes and Bull Jumping ceremonies.
Take a visual trip over to her website and experience the world captured through her lens. Trust us, you’ll feel that little bit more alive once you do. Wanderlust just took a hit.
