Maya Handley: Civic Surreal

Published by Remote Photobooks

Compelled to photograph, while also struggling to process increasing amounts of photographic imagery, I sought through this work to understand and explore my own relationship with photography.

The photographic frame creates boundaries, removes blurry edges and reduces ambiguity. The proliferation of photography as a means of communication today encourages us to experience life with a photographic eye. We’re able to segment, distill and project instantly.

Is this output a barrier or new point of connection to our environment? A border after all equally separates and joins things together.

The photo book format offered the intimate object I was looking for to extend this exploration and express these ideas in material form.
