Hemland

Hemland is a Swedish alphabet project that mines the photographic and written artifacts of my family’s pilgrimages back to Sweden. Translating these travel images, which were chronicled in disparate photographic media indicative of their decades, into the medium of cyanotype allows the images to occupy a common visual plane of shared experience. Side-by-side images of tourists loitering on Gamla Uppsala burial mounds, forty years apart, speaks to deeply-held impulses to return to the lands of those who came before us.

Travel Logs

Travelers have always felt compelled to give account of their journeys. Historically, it is a rich tradition that often tells us just as much about the traveller as the foreign lands transversed. On a more personal level, that recounting can be of benefit to both the speaker – congealing memories and validating experiences – and the sometimes curious (but almost always patient) listener.

So, please indulge me in this a modest archive of a some of the images from my own travels…
