Not here, Not there series

The “Not here, Nor there” series is both a love letter to the people and places I’ve left behind when I emigrated to Canada and an examination of the beautiful and difficult parts of embracing a new home, new friends and all the ways in which it changes you in a magnitude you could have never imagined.

It is a requiem to the person you left behind and the one you could have been. But more than anything it is a visual representation of feeling torn apart, between places, decisions, people or ideas, that never ending feeling of waiting: having sailed, but not having yet arrived.
