To My Future Self
To My Future Self

To My Future Self, a collection of hand bound booklets, narrates three defining aspects of my life that together establish me as an individual - design, travel and my outlook on life.

Each of the three booklets takes form of a mish mashed collage of self instilled wisdom and advice, life lessons learned, timelines, goal and bucket lists, future thinking, reflections, tweets and other personal pieces I’ve documented over my life. The photography illustrating the covers and spreads reveal a spectrum of imagery painting my early childhood up to my recent travel experiences.
