'...a delicioius respite in these uncertain times.'

Jennifer Hammel

Hello and welcome to the Genius Loci Digest and thank you for subscribing. 🤗

Every Friday I post out the Genius Loci Digest from travels in my camper van which you’ll receive in your inbox.

As people engage with the digest over the weeks and months, they come to realise that the digest is more than just a travel digest.

This digest is an antidote to a fast changing world, and my photography is another way of telling. It focuses on slow time, refinement, relevancy, and ultimately continuity.

Say hello!

About Me:

About the Genius Loci Digest
For over twenty years I’ve been seeking out alternative stories in our surviving material culture and sharing them with my photographs and words.

Here's all the Genius Loci Digests ever written:

genius loci digest - Andy Marshall’s Genius Loci Digest
This digest revels in the in-between, the transitional, the presence of absence. My camera with its dials and knobs and sharp focus has taken me into the blur of things. It has taught me that because things can’t be measured it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there. The spirit of things, the essence of our places is as real as my shutter button.
