"Modest yet bold, liberal and fun-loving."
Naming Uruguay the country of the year in 2013, the Economist may very well have described the rising nation’s head of state, President José “Pepe” Mujica.
Known for his unusual frankness, fiery oration and bold leadership to turn ideas into action, the 78-year-old leader possesses and practices the very characteristics that many world leaders fail to emulate. He has also garnered international acclaim for his progressive policies, down-to-earth personality and simple presentation, which has earned him a reputation as “the world’s poorest president.”
I recently took a trip to Tokyo for a week. It was the most surreal and incredible experience, Tokyo is unfathomably different to Hersham. While I was out there I borrowed a 35mm camera from my friend, Paul. Here’s a bunch of photos I took over the week!
I’m not sure if this was coming…
Ya boii took some rad photos in Tokyo. They came out so nice.
I wish I’d taken my 35mm camera with me to Shanghai. I got a medium format TLR in the last couple of weeks but didn’t really make the most of it.
Last night went from incredible to fucking terrible. Haven’t slept since yesterday morning. Done some stupid shit and seen friends and drunk coffee and been to some new places today and I think that’s helping me move forwards.
I love my friends so much. I miss all of them. I don’t want to sleep tonight in case I get all caught up in my thoughts because I have a feeling that that will kill my mood entirely. Getting through this. Full power. No remorse. Kill what you love and regain control of yourself. I am a master of the universe. I will destroy all objects in my way. Posi. Delirious.

I am an impossible, loser.
I can’t stop my head blasting around with all the shit I need to do (not that much.) and the timescales in which to do them in (a long time.) I’ve been so motivated for so long now but I think my job is really starting to get the better of me. I’m fed up of this shit and I don’t want to do it. I’ll be so much happier when I’m working shifts… I think.
