Culture and place are living, breathing things. Dynamic and constantly evolving on every scale, they gradually develop their own structural integrity -- their own texture.
Textures are not just about surface, but about depth as an integral part of “place.” Every city, every region, every continent has its own texture, its own quality created by the interrelation of its people, its architecture, its atmosphere. And while it is visible from many different perspectives, it’s more pronounced when we can touch it, feel it, and smell it on a human scale.
Zoom is about taking a closer look at the layers of culture, and seeing how these different places have consistencies at small, yet differ so vastly at large. It’s about exploiting similarities within their textural composition, yet celebrating the beauty in their individuality.
After 3 continents, 19 countries, in 8 months, I took 2562 photographs. 408 of which were textures.
