Imagining the City is an exploration of space, place and people. It is an engagement with fleeting visual encounters, an experiment in storytelling across analog & digital mediums as much is it is a fascination with one interesting little camera, the Olympus Trip 35. It is roaming city streets and far off coastlines in search of the commonplace once removed, a study of the in-between spaces of human encounter and moments where journeys intertwine. Imagining the City is an evolving portfolio, a study of the contemporary lived experience and it is a surrender to that inexplicable internal drive to go far, far away, to hear the call of the sea alone.
