Gate focuses on the boundaries between the unbridled, chaotic forces of nature and cultivated space, as defined by human culture. The book cover plays with the idea of opening a treasure chest and entering an imaginary world.The photographs are passageways, ethereal corridors moving between the material and the immaterial, the abstract and the real. The subjects become metaphysical demarcations between nature and culture, the cat becomes a symbol for an entity that straddles both worlds – the known and the unknown, shadow and light, life and death.
Gate explores this node between cultural understanding and the uncertain, alluring unknown, of the wilderness.
