strange ways


About strange ways

strange ways is a collection of photographs containing a mysterious intrigue of something found in the crossover between the everyday and the unexpected. In ordinary but overlooked scenes, the subject and framing hint at a narrative structure while withholding resolution. Though constructed to appear natural and spontaneous, the compositions deliberately eschew the context of a defined before and after. strange ways examines the dialogue between self and otherness.
