Abstract: People, Places and Spaces is a collection of bold prints I shot throughout eight countries in the beginning of the 21st century. The photographs represent a personal perspective of a journey and are a dialogue of ideas focused on appreciating new environments and the everyday. During my travel, I was like a sponge absorbing all that was around me. My intent was to expose and illuminate my idea of appreciating the mundane and foreign experiences through traveling the world. I was interested in the everyday, common place experiences that have become routine. Inspired to frame and photograph what were for others regular routines, I wanted to save and share my experiences with an audience upon my return. Eight countries, four months, and a sea of creativity and life surrounded me. I chose to focus on portraiture, cityscapes, and architecture. I found the landscapes of cities and the personality of individuals in a vast array of unrelated subjects, which in the end blend to create this body of work, as seen in Drag on Street, 2005, (Fig. 5) and Window Washer Wanted, 2005, (Fig. 26). This collection illustrates life in many large metropolitan cities and small rural suburbs as demonstrated in Cityscape � Movement and Love, 2005, (Fig. 9) and Pretty Production, 2005, (Fig. 30). My intent was to expose and illuminate my idea of appreciating mundane through traveling the world. I used my camera as a devise of control to create structure. This inevitably became my tool to document fragments of initially overwhelming situations, giving solidarity and a personal viewpoint in documenting a vast array of territories with loaded and complex histories.
