Going from place to place, many of us disappear. Lost in our thoughts, the journey from one place to the next is a forgotten part of our lives. It is a space between the things we do. It can be a journey that is taken subconsciously, perhaps we make the same route every day, to which we often switch off. Yet there is an unconscious order that reveals itself through photography. Every once in a while from the chaos of life everything seems to fall into place.
These photographs are the attempt to record that forgotten or unnoticed order amongst the chaos, a search for the humour that can pass unnoticed in ordinary life, and a search for beauty in the mess of urban sprawl. They are not necessarily revealing any truth about life, more a surreal fiction constructed from reality.
