Monday 8th April, 2013 – NYC, USA
Neither of us have stopped since we got back to New York in early February, after eight months away – three of those on the River Gambia Expedition in West Africa. The last couple of months have been spent wading through those three months of images (Florio), updating the blog (me)…and, generally, getting back to being home. There’s an awful lot of house-keeping to catch up on after eight months of absence. However, and at last, we are getting ready to ship prints out to all of those who got involved in ‘An Exchange’ and our Kickstarter campaign for Jason Florio’s fine art photography prints – taken whilst we were in West Africa. We have postcards too, featuring one of Jason’s images from the journey, for every single person who helped to make the expedition possible.
It’s a joy to see this labour of love in print. Our apartment is bulging at the seams with the people who live and work along the River Gambia – one of Africa’s last major free-flowing rivers. Sublime visual reminders of the people we met along the way – and of new friends made – who we know we will go back to revisit. But, that will be another story…
BIG thanks, again, to every single person who made our journey happen. Our thanks, to you, will be with you very shortly.
More tales and images from the River Gambia coming soon, here on the blog.

P.S. There are a few of you out there who have yet to make your print choice or provide us with an address for the postcards. Please let us know, soon as, and we can get your print and/or postcard out. Thanks!
