Each week, we’re showcasing the work of a photographer who caught our eye with their striking images and inspirational focus. This week’s #LensCultureDiscovery is Alejandra Carles-Tolra (@alejandractr), who’s sharing some images from her series “Where We Belong.” In this project, the photographer documents the Jane Austen Pineapple Society, a group of people who share a strong passion for the author, whose world is treated as a living, breathing force of the present. Describing themselves as ‘Janeites,’ the society’s members have created a community that meet up, hang out and party—in Regency style. Check out our interview with Alejandra on LensCulture by searching her name on our home page, and stay tuned for more images from this beautiful story all week.
