Home is a Foreign Place
Home is a Foreign Place is a project based on finding a sense of home in Toronto. The word ‘home’ has multiple meanings, but to me, it’s where I feel the safest. Since moving to the High Park area, it has become a place where I find solitude and comfort. I focused my thesis on shooting at High Park. I explore how I can connect to the land and find a sense of home by using landscape images and emerging myself into the land.
