Wish You Were Here  2014 - 2015

A project of self-portraits, snapshots and artefacts belonging to a journey which began in May 2014, during an international trip.

These images were captured during moments of duress, where there was a desire to recoup stability as I sought to explore my identities in new and unfamiliar surroundings.

Wish You Were Here plays with the connection between photographic evidence, presence and intimacy. These snapshots raise questions about the broader nature of identity in one’s rapidly changing environment. Nakedness and privacy is exposed in the unfamiliar landscape, serving as a souvenir to the sudden impulses of character, whether it be alone or with company, away or at ‘home’.
