I’m in absolute awe of the work of Mario Marino. The Austrian born portrait photographer has been capturing fascinating human subjects in their native environments for some fourteen years. Not surprisingly, his work is exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.

I find myself particularly drawn to his ‘Faces of Africa’ series which documents the various subcultures of South Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley region, chosen for its incredible density of distinct ethnic minorities.

I read an interview with Marino recently, wherein he gave what I thought was a perfectly eloquent description of his work: “Empathy and walking is the key to my work. A normal day consists of about 8 -10 hours walking around looking for people (15 to 20 kilometers a day). I try to read people’s lives, the circumstances they live in, the feelings they must have. The human being is at the center of my photography.”

Visit his website for further amazement.

    • Lazy Saturdays.... for some.
    • We've got double doggie trouble around here for a few days as Pep's sister, Jessie, is stay with us while her humans (also our humans) are in South Africa.
    • Waking up to music is a good way to start the day. Although Pepper's not still not sure what's happening in here when the beat drops... 😂 there's always a frantic little bark like someone's coming for her. Cray cray pup!

    • Around this time last year I was working on a secret makeover project for Kaitlyn's bedroom. She went to school with much resistance on the morning of her birthday and came home to a different room. The reaction was priceless! But seriously, where has a whole year gone?  #timeflies #kidspo
    • Loved seeing this room we designed last year featured over at @mintymagazine today. Despite it being a little over a year ago, it seems like a lifetime ago. Makes.you realise how much happens in a year and how quickly it goes.
    • That time we kitted all the @houseofhawkes smalls out in the cool new @piupiuchick collection from @martin_and_ella - I think it was one of the last mornings that you could be outdoors without actually melting, so I guess it was well timed. ☀️🔥🕶🤩
How many sleeps till school's out?? #summer2019 #hot #summer #itsgettinghotinhere #piupiuchick #houseofhawkesloves
    • Say hello to my new toy, the B&O M5 wireless speaker.  She’s busting out the tunes whilst ticking all the aesthetic and audio quality boxes, looking ever so pretty amidst this re-styled corner of my bedroom. She’s destined for our holiday home in South Africa this summer (we’ve been on the hunt for a good wireless speaker for some time), but in the meantime I’m really enjoying having music in our bedroom again. I think my last source of audio in the bedroom was a clock radio!! Er, who remembers those?

In other news, the hubster is at an event this evening and I’m about to pop my podcast cherry (true story!) and I’m looking for recommendations, please. I’m yet to download a single episode, if that’s even what we call them, but I’ve got the audio situation on fleek. Kids and neighbours may be listening in too! I’m a strong case for the term ‘all the gear and no idea’, so please indulge me with your suggestions with what’s good in the podcast arena. I want to get tonight’s party started.

    • So who's remembered that Father's Day is upon us? In case you're in the last minute dot com camp like us, we've rounded up some fab suggestions on the leg blog. You're welcome 😉 #fathersdaygifts #fathersday #dad #spoilingdad #giftideas
    • Manic mornings start like this.... it's so bright and hot at the moment, I feel like a need my sunnies inside! ☀️🕶
