Di’s got a ticket to ride


Pin It

Photographer Diana Willington

Wildlife in Boliva, boat children of Beijing and praying Buddist monks in South East Asia. Diana Willington has been there, done that and taken the picture.

Now you can share her memories from through the lens at a unique exhibition here Cayman at Full of Beans Café entitled “One Way Ticket”.

Born in Scotland and raised in the North West of England, Diana picked up a camera at the tender age of 13 and has hardly put it down since.

Diana, 30, spent three years on the road travelling all corners of the globe and this, her debut exhibition, offers an insight into a world we all live in but rarely see.

Although by trade Diana worked as a producer for some of the biggest drama and documentary shows in the UK, photography and travel has always been her first love.

“I had two uncles who were in the navy and they had both sailed around the world more than once.,” said 30 year old Diana who lives in Bodden Town.

“They used to regale me with stories from all these exotic places that I had never heard of. When they died I decided to use the money they had left me to go and see these places for myself so I bought a one way ticket around the world.’

Diana has lived in Cayman for just over a year and is currently training as an underwater photographer under Cathy Church.

“I first visited Cayman in 2007 while on the one way ticket. I learnt to dive here and always dreamed of living here one day.’

‘This island is beautiful but the underwater landscape particularly excites me.”

One Way Ticket runs until the end of February at Full of Beans Café, Pasadora Place.
