You are so welcome to lean + meadow. Thank you for stopping by.

a little about lean + meadow…

lean + meadow is a visual journal created by photographer Lean Timms

A tiny atlas of food, travel and lifestyle, lean + meadow's drive is to capture and share moments from an appreciated, simple and slower paced life.

travel: Very few moments are found standing still. Constant wandering, seeking, and adventure - it's all documented and shared. From the northern hemisphere to the south, east coast to west, city streets and mountain climbs to a simple trip down the road. These stories are worth sharing. Travel is in the lean + meadow blood. 

food: It's about appreciating and documenting the story of food from the ground up to the belly. From small farms, their farmers and seasonal foraging to learning origins and local traditions and finally sparking inspired recipes and feasts. Keeping it slow. Keeping it mindful. Keeping a tight, local radius wherever in the world this may be. All shared through photographs and words or a quiet meal with friends - sweet or savoury, spontaneous or styled. 

lifestyle: To be surrounded by beauty and to seek it and to know it's possible. To keep creating. To live a life that is inspired and ever productive. To document moments of a life rich in community, appreciation and simplicity. Here you will find creative humans, well loved homes and original, curated spaces.
