Somebody Shot the Swans
Somebody Shot the Swans predicates landscape photography in an untraditional manner through the incorporation of autobiographical themes. Through this, my images act as external depictions of internal thoughts, emotions, memories, and trauma, considering the landscape as a canvas for the representation of my ‘self’. Natural breaks in the urban topography are evocative and compelling through their unique language and the intrigue of their spectacular beauty. I find myself captivated by these spaces because I envision them as extensions of myself, as well as external reflections of my state of mind. It’s as though my mind is projected and scattered throughout the urban terrain. Additionally, non-places and in-between sites often infiltrate my work, representing the liminal purgatory of my head space.
