These images merging trees and London were scenes taken with my phone. They also capture the conflicting feelings I have about London. Whilst I appreciate the city I often focus on the trees because part of me would always rather be surrounded by woodland or forest.

What does home mean to you?
Home is somewhere I find my family, somewhere I go and feel like I don’t have to be anything other than how I feel in that moment.  Home is where your belongings are at, where you prepare for your day. You can make a home a home wherever in the world and I don’t think there is a specific duration of time before you can call somewhere home.
Home also means where you are from, well kind off!

Where is home?
My home is North London in London in England. I don’t live there at the moment and have not for a year a 6 months but it will always be my home. That said it is my home and London is my city and so via default England it is also my country but not entirely, I am an immigrant after all.

What makes it home?
It’s home because I know it well and when I am there I don’t need google to tell me where to find something or google maps to tell me how to get about, how to get in and out or anything like that.  I can snub at the yuppies and liberals prancing around my home with a superiority that comes from being off the area. It is home because my family is there and when I am jobless it is the place I can go back to but even if they were not it would still be home as it is where I am from. For me home is the place you are from I couldn’t call anywhere else home not matter how long I had lived there. It is also home because I like and feel proud of the area. I imagine if I didn’t like it I would not be able to call it home in the same way.
