My photography project is on the hyperreal space of an amusement park. I’m using photos not as proof of having gone somewhere, but for creating yet another constructed, imagined space within the photographs. Most of these photographs do not feature people because I am most familiar with amusement parks as a solitary experience. A universal feature of amusement parks is waiting in queues. The line can be beneficial for experiencing the park, by building up suspense for the rides, and spacing out the excitement over the day. Of course the enduring quality of the ride is not necessarily fear, but the enjoyment of something extraordinary.
