Moving Forward in Place

The pandemic means something different to everyone. For someone who’s always tried to meticulously plan and control how my future unfolds, the lockdown was a period of reckoning.

If there’s anything I learned during this time, it’d be that physical environments are very important to me. When I needed a change, a new challenge, or a spark of inspiration, I always sought out new places: cafes, restaurants, foreign locations, or even new homes. Those not being options for the last two years, I searched inside. Inside my home, and inside myself: how do I move forward, while staying in place?

My answer is probably different than yours, but I hope that the emotional journey of forging a new life in this new and reluctant reality is something that many of us can resonate with. This is my motivation for making this photo book.

Moving Forward in Place is a collection of (kind of) diptychs divided into 5 chapters. Each chapter aims to trace the emotional contour of a period of time in lockdown—from moments of depression to glimmers of hope; from the mundane minutiae of everyday life to the highlights of an expedition to the outside world. 

I hope you can find something in these images that resonates with you.
