Location: Austin, TX, United States
In 1993, I relocated from my native homeland of Scotland to the United States, where I have spent over half of my life.
Being from somewhere else, the unfamiliar continent and uncertainty of my opposing duality is what stemmed this ongoing project, from an almost naive and subjective documentation of road trip culture.
This series, I'M NEW HERE, inspired by the lyrics of the Bill Callahan song, deals with my fascination of everyday occurrences in the social landscape, and explores the spaces between clarity and imperfection, composing a personal slice of America.
When put into a photographic context, the aesthetics convey recurring visions of irony, scrutiny, absurdity and empathy, transforming the banal into a nostalgic connection to myself and my background.
