a place to sleep
'a place to sleep' examines the boundaries of the provincial town I call home. The darkness in my images informs a psychological boundary that keeps me here and, by default, you there. Having moved away a couple of times, each time I found myself being drawn back by circumstances beyond my control. The need for a place to sleep somehow has me back in these all too familiar surroundings. Each day I would circle its outer edge, each day knowing that the end of today’s walk is the beginning of tomorrow’s. I never truly moved forward. I began to realise this small town and many others like it has become the setting for an existence destined to repeat.
