“This Place” is a show about connecting with our surroundings and asking where it is we belong within them. Often are we so distracted by the demands of responsibilities and by our personal devices, that in those spare moments when we are still the mind draws in and begins to observe the world around. With the use of a camera I try to capture the curiosities and mundanity of the everyday that is discovered within those quiet moments, however, it is within the process of drawing that the limitless stories and meanings of these inspired moments are revealed.
