My work stems from a need to always have a camera in my pocket. It is a study of both connection, through a personal look at relationships, and location; the effect a geographical location can have on emotions and behaviours, and using this as a means of identifying oneself more closely.
Info on the photos:
Friday the 13th of November was my first time visiting Paris. I was excited to see a city I felt I already knew through films, songs, photographs, and couldn’t wait to take it all in. After dropping my bag I did what I always do when in a new place alone, go for a walk, get a coffee, see where the city leads me. This walk took in Bastille to Grand Palais with many detours along the way and a final visit to Paris Photo. Afterwards I went for a beer and got the metro back to my hostel with the decision to go out for the night.
While I was going for a shower the city changed. My phone seemed like it was on constant vibrate with messages from friends and family checking in on me. I felt confused and slowly pieced the messages together to realise what had happened. I took a photo of my bed and stayed there for the night finishing off countless conversations, the same conversations that must have been happening all over the city that night.
