Architect, Blogger,Photographer and Activist. Politics Editor of The Platform, Researcher on Sustainability for INSEAD. Used to blog here since 2005, so update your blogrolls.

Photographs posted here are documentation of emotions,details,landscapes and architecture passionately collated from my travels and other fortuitous encounters.Most times, we look at objects for their utilitarian purpose, in this collation I regard them for their momentary visual appearance.

My pseudonym Aufidius comes from the favourite stage character I portrayed from Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.

    You’ve moved! feel like i should be giving you a house warming present…instead i shall give you my two cents (it’s all i can afford right now)

    Happy New Blog! and yes, i did notice the fact that you are “very judgmental about curves and hate using them in design.” terrible.. hopefully the new blog will help you see the light. Have fun, good luck and May the curve be with you! =)

    • Ah the curve has been trying to be with me for sometime now, I have played elusive 😉

      Thanks Minah, thanks most of of all for introducing me to photography when I couldn’t photograph to save my life, all those years ago 🙂

    Raashid, I reached out to you a while ago regarding a possible photo commission. I’d like to meet up, if you’re still in London, to discuss a new venture I’ve founded that requires a photographic exploration of human emotion and feeling. Do get in touch if you’re interested!
