Reality & Imagination
Being a foreigner living permanently in the Unite States, I am very much aware of the dynamic interaction that takes place between the two cultures.
I photograph the tide as visual metaphor to explore the interaction that exists between cultures when one lives permanently in a foreign land.
The cultures automatically interact with each other in a motion that is instantly fluid and turbulent, just as the sand and tide. It’s a constant movement in unison where each always retains its distinctive characteristics, and creates a duality that is always present.
Each of the 5 sections of ‘Reality & Imagination’ explores this cultural duality. The section ‘Silhouette & Shadow’ gives an actual shape to the two cultures as silhouette & shadow, which are both entities that cannot exist without the presence of another.
