The photo series Lost in Spain came to life during my time in Spain from 2014 to 2017. This series includes both traditional street photography and staged pictures. I like to use light and shadow to construct visual space and to introduce images of solitary figures – anonymous and alone. My subjects often seem all alone as they embark on their own personal journal but some of the images revealing the enclosure of a state of mind, the feeling of being entrapped in something. Serving as the backdrop to these solitary figures, the worlds around them are carefully constructed, idealistic even, as if the worlds that they occupy are more of a dreamscape of idealism. Lost in Spain oscillates between light and dark, the real and the fictional. It echoes our own experiences as life is so social and interactive, but at the same time we all have those moments of feeling isolated and alone.
