Somewhere in Between
With Thomas Ive
Somewhere in Between is a photo essay celebrating our fundamental connections to the natural world. Produced over the winter lockdown months, we used props to mimic the elements to create a surreal tone and atmosphere. We photographed four instances of summer nostalgia in winter; barefeet in sand, a patch of blue sky, sitting on a grassy stretch, and a beam of sunlight. Having researched the scientific concept of biomimicry, which uses design inspired by nature, we took this theme as a visual cue for our photo explorations. We sought to make this concept more accessible through a visual narrative. This photo essay provides an alternative view of the habitats we mimic. Somewhere in Between draws on our desire to create lived experiences that have passed.
