This must be the place is the first publication from a long term study of my home city. I'm a resident of the city, a part of the place I am trying to communicate, yet I retain a position of a tourist, an outsider looking in.
The photographs are the product of many hours of wandering. A simple solitary act, but one that enables me to study the local topography in detail and with a somewhat objective perspective, free from cliches and stereotypical local projections.
This work started as a kind of record, individual documents. But with time has developed into more of a subjective autobiographical response. The work is not about one thing in particular, but more an attempt to make an authentic portrait of my native city.
I hope it resonates with people locally, contributes to discussions about this city now, and with time be an important historical document of the way we are.
