The work delves into the imagination of the everyday, looking at the mundane environments which surround us all. Hinterlands, deals with the process of signification that can contain cultural, mythological and symbolic meanings. Given that space is never neutral, the photographs concern itself with private and social spaces. As well as exploring how Realism can turn in to Romanticism in front of our eyes.

This body of work was created on my return to my homeland, after being away in a distant land, with foreign cultures for numerous years. Over this period of time, I lost contact and reality with my own culture. On my return to my so-called motherland, there was an interesting development, as I felt as I, was an outsider to my birthplace and my own culture.

I was discovering a new unseen civilization as a stranger for the first time. Observing new architecture, landscapes, environments and people, with a new excitement and wonder. The work questions what is culture? do we truly belong to one as contemporary humans. Or do we hang on to these outdated notions of countries individual culture, to make us feel we belong to some type of tribal patriotism, in this new global world of identity.
