Finding Neverland is a series capturing cinematic moments. Drawing on the idea of the Film Poster this is a series of vivid portraits and isolated scenes. It is about a fascination with narrative in photography, capturing the moments in between.
The term ’Never-Never Land’ refers to an unrealistic dream about a utopian future - through colour, architecture and space, Finding Neverland is the representationof our obsessive search for the absolution of desire, a search for the answers to our void, a search for home.
To collect photographs is to collect the world, in Finding Neverland the characters attempt to convert experiences into images to keep as souvenirs, to build their own world of places and objects. This series explores the disproportionate relationship between man and his surroundings.
Interested in the psychological nature of photography, this series is an opportunity to delve into our desire, fear and anxiety, the photographs depicts scenes of life , all held within a delicate dream. Neverland is a fictional place and time, kept alive only in the surreal, an escapist dream.
It is said that Neverland lies beyond the horizon and can only be reached at the time of sunrise.
