Out of Place (2020)
The run up and aftermath of the UK referendum on EU membership was a tumultuous time. I noticed that aggressive and divisive political discourse started influencing how I looked at my environment. To explore this observation further, I started running... with a camera. Because running requires physical effort and environmental awareness, I could not spend much time thinking and composing the photographs. I usually ran at night and the darkness also made the outcomes unpredictable. The photographs in this series are the result of this very direct approach to image making.
I self-published this series as an edition of 60 books:
A.J. Pretorius, Out of Place, Lancaster, ISBN 978-1-5272-5928-7, 2020.
