Liminal Spaces

For my undergraduate art thesis, I created a photo series that explored natural landscapes through a tilt-shift lens. The surreal distortions caused by the lens generate a sense of unease, I explained at the time, a kind of psychological tenuousness. These are liminal spaces at the border of an unknown realm, which we can access through a simple shift in focus.

About a decade has passed since I started this photo series, and as I continue to add to it, it occurs to me that what I initially thought was a conceptual project perhaps is actually my own being expressing itself. I often find myself in these blurry, in-between spaces. Photography too is this way: an ever-present record of moments past, photography is neither then nor now.
