"This series was a product of a lot of time during the pandemic and my recent fascination with mixed media. Pretty mundane places can look and feel surreal when you look twice. I attempt to capture this with photographs during those evening walks and drives to have as a keepsake and to remember.
During the quarantine, this, mixed with the longing to actually be out, I started imagining people in these places and doodle these imaginary people. It was just a way for me to romanticise the world outside the four walls and to commemorate life as it once was."
