Oyster contributor Charlie Brophy usually photographs fashion shoots like this and this, but she's been travelling lately and as such, she's produced a series of travel diaries especially for us — taken in India, Laos/Bankok and, in this edition, Europe. We asked the talented young thing some travel related questions, to inspire our weekend.
Where were you?
Barcelona, Cadaqués, Amsterdam, Berlin & London
I was travelling solo and then met up with friends.
How long for?
For a new adventure.
"Life is a holiday."
Losing my memory.
The smell of summer in Europe.
The different colour pallets specific to each city. Especially at golden hour, just before the sun sets.
Best 'local' story/encounter?
On the first morning I awoke at the artists studio and Cyborb Foundation in Barcelona. The founder dreamt he had a piano so we set out to buy one that day, brought it home on a forklift and he played amazingly to people on the streets of Born.
If you could do it all again...
I wouldn't change a thing.
