Home, Sweet Home.

Updated: Mar 4


Everybody can think of something that reminds them of home. Perhaps, it’s the smell of freshly baked bread in the kitchen. Or, it could be the jovial greeting from a furry friend as you walk through the front door. This week, our photography team compiled a series of photographs that encapsulate the essence of our respective homes.


A photo of a mother and her child. Though this is a picture taken of two strangers, this photo evokes a sense of nostalgia in me. It acts as a reminder of my childhood and of the times my mother used to take me to the beach during holidays. Those memories are where my sense of home comes from. Photographer: Zahra Jardine


Aloe, one of the most neglected plants in my country (Lesotho). The plant is heavily used for medicinal purposes, thus, putting it at risk of extinction. Photographer: Shaun Matiea
