For this series I travel alone to unfamiliar places and take miniature instant photos of the world I find myself navigating. I then paint from those images upon returning home, forced to access my memory of the place due to the inability of the instant photograph to capture the same level of detail as is rendered in my paintings. The works then become not so much faithful renderings of a place, but paintings of a memory of having once existed there.
