This series of photographs, investigates the daily inclination to retreat; the desire to momentarily displace thought by means of visual association. Phenomenology, or the way one transcends experience, warrants the separation of the individual from the universal, allocating for a unique, multiplicity of perspectives from a seemingly, single-faceted canon.
Being interested in what triggers the shift, I concluded that universally, or rather globally, the connection to the earth, the landscape, the flora and fauna of the land, singularly is the most uncomplicated experience. When surrounded by nature, a connection is formed and we purely exist as interaction. Therefore, we surround ourselves with reminders of the uncomplicated to grant the reverie. This invaluable adaptive skill the human race has acquired, provided the stimulus to intertwine the everyday and the exotic landscape, leaving images of that strange place between here and there.
