Nerja – Spain


April 2017


Most of us travel with a more powerful camera built into our phones than the first digital camera I used in a professional photography studio, however the less powerful front facing camera appears to be hogging the limelight:

  • More people died from taking selfies in 2015 than from shark attacks.
  • 55 percent of millennials have taken selfies and shared them via social media.
  • 74 percent of all images shared on Snapchat are selfies.
  • 1,000 selfies are posted to Instagram every 10 seconds.
  • There are 93 million selfies each day, which would represent 2,583,333 rolls of film.


This is a selection of moments from a recent trip to Nerja in Spain on the first week of April 2017. The first of what I aim to be an ongoing travel project. The project has three simple rules.

  • No front facing camera
  • No social media uploads
  • No hashtags

I hope you enjoy it.
