SOMEPLACE IN BETWEEN (2019)

In this series, I digitally constructed various source photographs taken from a variety of locations into single images. Using this process, I intended to create simulated images of reality. These images are manipulated in a way that eliminates clues to the location or environment of these buildings. The surroundings feel familiar, but also foreign. The lack of human traces throughout the architecture may stir feelings of uncertainty. With a closer inspection of the images, there are details revealed that look unreal. These technical imperfections intend to raise question to the truthfulness of these photographs. Utilizing a medium that is often mistakenly associated with truth, the resulting images acknowledge photography’s role in the ‘post-truth’ era and obscure the line between fabrication and reality.
