'Kogai no Monogatari' (Stories of the Suburbs)
'Stories of the Suburbs' is a body of work that I developed during a four month visit to Japan in 2016. The title of the work is an umbrella name for a series of smaller projects that I made during this visit. The smaller projects comprise of four handmade photo books or 'stories' which all follow a collective theme of psychogeographical exploration within a 15km radius from where I lived in the suburbs of Nagoya city. The work is about walking as artistic practice, instinctive travels, the everyday surface of the city and uncommon spaces. My work deals with movement and the urban sublime in the transient motion of the cityscape.
