A Souvenir from Europe

About this project

A series of pieces inspired by trips to France, Belgium and Germany. The act of being away from home and being a tourist is a way of ‘escaping’ the everyday; on holiday the everyday is far more interesting however…we are looking with much more intent; visually consuming the sights. I am interested in how these ‘sights’ may be something very ordinary and everyday, as well as the more typical attractions in most tourist destinations.
