“This EP and accompanying series of photographs is a philosophical document of my first few months living in a new rural environment (I moved from the city about a year ago.) It particularly deals with a walk I took most evenings from the local unmanned train station across fields to my home. It was a journey I repeated regularly over the coming winter months and as time went by I began to absorb the atmosphere of the landscape, noticing the subtle changes in the quality of the evening light until by mid winter I was walking in complete darkness, finding my way by torch light. I began to think about how limited our human senses and minds are at understanding the world around us. I started to document my journeys using the camera on my iPhone and discovered that the limits of the iPhone camera combined with the limits of the environment I was photographing- winter, end of the day, very limited light rapidly disappearing- meant the image broke up in a way that perfectly described the themes I was thinking about- a lack of information, lack of answers, looking hard but not finding anything, not even being able to see if there’s anything to find.
