I’ve spent most of my life buried in suburbia and there’s always been a sense of emptiness and desolation for me in this landscape. I often see a lack of human presence but the evidence of such life still remains visible. Most people spend their days at work or school and apart from drivers on the roads there are very little signs of activity. Even the houses themselves are closed off from one another and from the world. I’m often found wandering the streets during the day observing this as if I am an outsider. I feel alienated from the landscape even though I’m in the midst of it. For me this is the antithesis to traditional street photography; there’s no glamorization of big city life, no sense of awe or wonder in the scenery, rather just the dullness of the suburbs.
