As modernity beckons in Europe at the turn of the twentieth century, there is a moment of recoil, which seems not only to extend the sentiments that precede it but also immerse them into altered states of consciousness. This subversion of reality presents an opportunity not to simply look back but, rather, for artists to forge a future forwards

After birth- to work or not to work

For the past six months I was working in an organization remotely. It’s a creative hub that brings talent from all over the world together to do tailored, high-end comms for those looking to step up their communications game. Well, Von Peach was founded during COVID, so when I say ‘brings talent together’, I mean virtually. And when I say virtually I mean with the exception of last week, where the entire company, a six-strong squad, went to Sardinia to meet in person for the first time and devise a plan of action for the next quarter.
Our small but feisty creative hub was born during the pandemic, with creative peaches working remotely tucked in their cosy corners of the world and magicking ideas into life in between video calls, Slack chats and the occasional sharing of memes and playlists.
Recently, we’ve been working on a project that has also spotlighted the incredible human traits of resilience and adaptation to me, in the form of a photo essay called Stories of Home.
