"Surely there were others like me, born without an inkling of direction. The wanderers, the amblers, the dabblers, united by our purposeless mantra- I have no idea what to do with my life."

Reflection

I am an avid traveller and explorer living in the big city. My goal for this project was to capture the peacefulness and rawness of the mountains, it's inhabitants and it's visitors using all original photography and hand written notes. I wanted to create a beautiful piece that inspires people to seek the areas themselves. The layouts are extremely minimal and clean. The text is meant to mimic and interact with the photographs, creating serene, yet captivating compositions.
