––––––––––‘We are now in a position to see the wonder and terror of the human predicament: man is totally dependent on society. Creature of dream, he has created an invisible world of ideas, beliefs, habits, and customs which buttress him about and replace for him the precise instincts of the lower creatures. In this invisible universe he takes refuge, but just as instinct may fail an animal under some shift in environmental conditions, so man’s cultural beliefs may prove inadequate to meet a new situation, or, on an individual level, the confused mind may substitute, by some terrible alchemy, cruelty for love.’ ‘The Immense Journey’ - Loren Eiseley––––––––––

Postcards to 2021

Postcards to 2021 is a collection of photomontages that act as a love song to pre-pandemic times. Using holiday photographs captured between 2018-2020, alongside text and illustration, this project weaves together a fragmentary experience of adventure and of distant places. It attempts to capture the feeling of newness that accompanies travel, using moments small and large to form a poetic collage.
