Photography - 'a sense of place'
The nature of photography is that it instantaneously captures moments in time which then become memory. It documents the current where it immediately becomes the past, and is used to represent something that was 'real'. Within these functions there is a sense of ambiguity, the camera can represent a sense of truth and it can also be the means with which to construct manipulated spaces. The following images represent a documentation of my time in new and unfamiliar spaces.
