Most of my images are produced away from home in the “field”, as anthropologists say. Home, Transit is my effort to take the ethnographic gaze back to the places I live and work. In the field, I use the camera as a tool to familiarise myself with a place, to wrap my head around a situation. Back home I use the camera to regain a distance to the all-to familiar. Over the past decade I have lived in Switzerland, England, Tibet, and Singapore, and I have been on the move for much of the time in between. Being home and being in transit have become blurred categories. The images and stories in this theme explore this misty territory.
