This is a body of work that has gestated over a long period of time.

When I was young, I used to observe my surroundings, noticing the minute details everyone overlooked. It was only much later when I finally picked up a camera, I began to record those details religiously.

Having given photography a great deal of thought over the years, I considered the fact that we tend to take photographs of important events in our lives. However, I have always been more fascinated by the unimportant and the obscure fleeting moments.

I later came across the word Lacuna from watching a TV show, and I looked up its meaning; Lacuna is a Latin word for gap or hole and is used in a variety of contexts including memory.

When I first started photography, I just shot things I liked or drew my attention, sometimes not even knowing why I took the photo.

Now years later, now working on long-term projects I wanted to return to the beginning, taking photos for the sheer joy of it and unencumbered by the need to capture something specific.

Lacuna was the perfect way to coalesce all the seemingly random images I’d collected up to now and it formed a body of work I could continue to add to as well.
