Armchair Traveller

Armchair Traveller

Did you ever want to visit the Egypt of the 1920s? How about 1960s Italy? I did. I do. And photographic technology means I can.

Armchair Traveller focuses on the potential that images on postcards and travel posters hold as environments we can project ourselves into. They promise adventure and incite exciting daydreams that momentarily eclipse reality. They offer us the chance to travel in our imaginations, even as our bodies remain stationary, and these travels can happen not only across continents but also across centuries. By pasting myself into these environments I hope to create myself a whole new set of memories and experiences that would never have been possible in reality.
