Photo Journal: Americana

Photo Journal: Americana

I was born on the other side of Atlantic Ocean, my
heritage was tinted by the power of American imagery. Immersed in
commercials, movies and everything else that my life was at the
time, I was drawn in by the various pieces of the puzzle which made
up the American dream.

I realised everything had a visual appeal; it all seemed to be
arranged in such an order that it was as if things were standing
still for me, just waiting for a photograph to be taken.

So I started my largest project so far, Americana, for which I
have spent time photographing and documenting both the differences
and similarities between the American states. Far from an
ubiquitous American road-trip diary, my work explores diverse
American landscapes rather than the big city lights.

Reflecting my journey through each state, I explore textures,
shapes and colours, digging deeper in the hope of lifting the veil
on the mysteries of American culture. The recurrence and mirroring
of themes in the series aim to set a rhythm in motion which follow
my own scenic odyssey.
