Alexander Van Der Byl

Monachopsis

Through this body of work I wanted to portray the inner psychological experience of the very 'subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place' - monachopsis - often experienced by some members of a displaced or gentrified community. Through visual storytelling, the character within this set of images portrays both the familiar and unfamiliar. Monachopsis manifests itself in the inability to feel comfortable within new circumstances, and produces an underlying feeling of anxiety. This discomfort leaves aperson feeling detached and drawn inwards into their own thoughts, despite their surroundings.
