M A N  F O R G O T T E N  -  Work in progress

MAN FORGOTTEN is a series consisting of single images, videos and installations, which further my research into the need we have as humans to ‘belong’ and that vital space, or lack thereof, which helps us to feel like a part of the world surrounding us. In previous series I have spent more time using social anthropology (through physical travel and intense investigation) in order to present an aesthetic language true to the subjects I’ve encountered, with Man Forgotten I have chosen to engage in an autobiographical dialogue in hopes of creating a discourse leading to a true and coherent mood, a profound gaze into my constant search for meaning in my eternal wandering.
