The familiar yet unidentifiable landscape of the “passing scene” allows the viewer to also inhabit the space of the traveler in the photographs, to be in these non-places without fixing on destination. Each image includes a graphic “void” where parts of the photographic image have been removed, giving the impression of a graceful silence in the context of travel.
“The images disrupt the sense of place usually established in photographs, confusing intimacy and distance, difference and sameness, indexical and fantastical. In these images, there lives the idea of being somewhere and nowhere simultaneously.”
