These images were shot on a Holga 120 camera, which is renowned for it's unpredictability and susceptibility to mistakes, an important technical decision embraced in the work. This project is about anxiety in the modern world and explores everyday feelings of nervousness felt in public spaces, particularly environments consisting of high-rise buildings where tension can be felt amongst the converging form of imposing buildings. Abstraction is used to communicate this experience of estrangement without being representative of the architectural structures as they are. Double exposures, prism lenses and intentional motion re-construct the world into views unseen by the eye, by nature they are both confusing and intriguing, which is how one can feel amongst the anatomy of built surroundings.
