The Great Escape
This latest project follows on from a previous body of work which centred on a road trip that cut through the heart of the urban environments of Essex and Suffolk. For this current series I have focused on a specific area of the social landscape combined with the concept of flow meditation. Here, the act of driving is used as a meditative tool to enter a mindful state of quiet and calm in a current situation of personal tumult and turbulence. These roadside diners and cafes are photographed as beautiful, empty and peaceful stops on my journeys to and from my work outside of photography. They are employed as visual metaphors for a desired mental state and disposition, and represent a welcome escape from the anxieties of life.
