For I Only Needed Awakening | Rachel Goldsworthy

For I Only Needed Awakening’ is a collection of the beautiful people and places that captured my curiosity in between work trips to China from 2013-2016. I wanted to create it for my friend Fiona who made my time there so memorable and helped me to fall in love with the culture even if she didn’t realize it.


In This World | Kelly Creedon
