collages

The collages above belong to a project I did a few years ago. I wanted to create a different kind of (paper!) photo album for travels that had changed and inspired me.
Browsing through old photos brought the usual nostalgia of faraway countries, memories and people.
What was especially interesting in this project is that I often think of places I visited in terms of colors. Ubud is lush and green but there is a special pink when the sun sets in the rice fields which I have not encountered anywhere else. The mountains above Leh scream of minerality but it is quite impossible to describe the infinite variations of tones. Light, wind and clouds create a unique extraordinary landscape in motion. Creating the background that matched my inner vision of these places thus became another way to travel and remember.
