About #45Conversations

This is the story of how 45 Conversations was born. It came to be between July 1 - Canada Day and July 4 - Independence Day (and my birthday) and ultimately evolved into a new name and direction for the work I do in the field of early learning, child care, education and online media.

1. Javier Leite - Dublin, Ireland

Javier has been a keen amateur photographer for well over a decade.

His favourite subjects are mostly seascapes and landscapes, as long as there is water and cloud!
Capturing the passing of time into a photograph allows him to impart a dreamlike and slightly surreal bias to his work.

He has been an active member of the Dublin Camera Club since 2002 and is a Licentiate of the Irish Photographic Federation since 2011.

Javier grew up in Galicia in Spain, having been born in Germany back in 1970. He now lives in Dublin, Ireland.
