In traveling to one of the most popular sites for tourism, I wondered if it was possible to create an image or imprint of the feeling of being unfamiliar, using traditional means.
To gain a sense of wonder. I think this is why travel has grown in popularity, to gain the sense of wonder and a way to handle the remebrance of the freedom we enjoy and easily forget.
I became interested in beauty as a force of truth. Tourism, as part of this modern time is often critiqued for the destructive impact to the environment, the havoc on the local culture, as culture becomes an import and export item. the materiality of the image, to show depth within colors.
So many images exist today, and so I wonder why is it needed to go to the place itself? Can I make a story with the photographs, in such a way, the beauty and love within a place can be transmitted visually? Via the materiality of the image, depth within colors, I wish to convey this kind of love for the beauty of the landscapes place in a timeless way.
