Time and place – light and atmosphere

We are especially sensitive to shifts of light and weather. In the past our survival depended on how well we could read these signs and our emotional response to a particular place varies with changing light and atmosphere – under cloud or caught by the morning sun.

Although these changes are fleeting in themselves, the identity of a location and our feelings about it are layered: the sum total of countless transient moments.

A sense of place

Subtle differences in languages, thought processes and beliefs reframe common experiences. This cultural variation, in combination with geography, climate and history once gave each country a unique visual character that is now rapidly changing.

I am intrigued with all these things that, together with very personal connections, give rise to a sense of place and identity.
