Here are some semi recent photographs which continue my on-going project made in Overland Park. I have well over 200 images in this series now which have all been made over the last couple of years. Regular followers of this blog will know that many images from this project have been posted here over this time and is on the whole largely still unedited. It has been a series which I have felt my way through more than anything else and it has at times acted like a sort of diary from home. Sometimes I have responded closely to the original brief I gave myself and at other times it has been something of an experiment and a place to exercise creativity and explore larger idea's about America. It has also been a way for me to align myself psychically with place. These new photographs, however, are more personal in nature.

I Have Always Been Here Before


Pioneers, KS

Lost Boy

Thursday January 23rd marked five years since I arrived in America. Over this time I have been fortunate enough to visit 29 of it's States and been able to make photographs in most of them and it is this journey which I have sporadically documented here at this blog. America has come as one of the great inspirations of my life, both personally and artistically. With a profound feeling of both strangeness and familiarity it has often crossed my mind, that, in whichever previous incarnation I might have had, traveling to America is a journey which I have somehow always ended up making. It echo's right through me too, out of viscera and into dreams, with images of a flickering succession of sea vessels, down through the wormhole of history and back to it's discovery. So today - now - with a shuddering sense of deja vu, I hear myself whisper; "I have always been here before".

It has also been a way for me to align myself psychically with place. This year I intend to begin tightening up this project and start working in a more methodical way. I want to study local maps more closely, photograph the city boundary's, make more portraits and filling in the gaps of my exploration and then begin to edit it with a view to bringing this project to some kind of conclusion. This will not be easy, but giving myself these guidelines and discipline is important at this time.
