“In this project I have realised a childish dream. I play with the idea of being an ambitious collector; conserving my environments into a large personal collection. Most landscapes are from where I grew up, where my roots still lie. Separation anxiety to my childhood is simply what absorbed me into this project.
With analog multiple exposures I am able to manipulate my photographs in-camera—this project was not created or manipulated in an external software such as Photoshop.
Jarred & Displaced is an ongoing project, this is my first installment”. -Christoffer Relander
