THE CENTRE AND BEYOND is our second instalment of 'In Motion’ - a portrait series that explores the simple in-between gestures of life. Three remarkable, women photographed on location by Alice Neale at the centre of the city they call home. Here, they offer reflections on what the centre means to them, and the sirenic call of what lies beyond. Antonia is founder of Soft Opening gallery in London. 

GERBASE: What feels like the ‘centre’ of your world today?
AM: The gallery of course, even when I’m not there I wish I was. 

GERBASE: Where do you go to escape?
AM: My garden... the roses have just come out and they smell so sweet.

GERBASE: How does the city make you feel?
AM: Energised. 

GERBASE: Is there a place you’d like to go that you’ve never been to before?
AM: Heaven.
