This project is about a love of place, with all the complexity that word can generate. The photographs are created on chance encounters. What I seek is a kind of magic that can exist in ordinary daily living.
Many of the people I meet have a sense of pride about this place; that connection with their surroundings is something I want to explore. Like clues or hints, I find myself looking for the subtle ways my subjects reveal themselves.
