'Otherworlds' is a series that became a means of escape from difficult realities in my life. As a New Zealander, born and raised in open spaces, I made the move to Dresden, Germany shortly before the work began. Living in a populated cityscape, I subconsciously returned to nature throughout the work, finding familiar places in the outdoors that felt like home.
A mixture of collaborative team work and my own handmade elements, each image was created around the idea of a character in their own world, somewhere on the border of our own. These are the other worlds, in between places - where the realities of normal life can be put on hold for a moment. It was shot in several different countries, including Germany, Czechia and New Zealand and in each country a familiar space in nature awaited - free from culture, language and architecture.
Otherworlds invites the viewer to leave behind their daily life and cross over for a moment, into nature and another reality.
