‘Omniscience’ is a project I started at the beginning of 2018 to explore interior spaces of extraordinary beauty
Historical buildings are reminiscent of our history - they are intrinsically timeless and, in many ways, otherworldly. People often visit these places to clear their mind. Observing a three-dimensional space in its entirety through panorama photography gives us a perspective beyond what the eye can see. It breaks us from reality, plays with our perception of shape and form and creates a sense of another world.
My work sits between realism and fantasy. I often look for inspiration from paintings, movies & games. I started gaming from a very young age, and I think it has impacted my photography more so than any other art-form. My love for Classic Architecture has less to do with the structure itself but rather an inner dialogue with my youthful self. Through my photography, I hope to impart fragments of fantasy to the viewer, encourage them to take a momentary step out of their reality.
