Nomadsight

A change of course

In 2006, I was walking to a university exam when it hit me:  my life was unfolding in a predictable and safe way. And yet I knew nothing of the world nor of humanity. In a stroke of courage or naivety, I sold everything I owned and bought a backpack and one-way ticket to the farthest place I could afford. I set out to see the world as it truly is, not merely accepting what I'd been told. For 8 years, I traveled; not just to move or to take pictures but to be a humble student of humanity; to learn what connects us all.

Through the Lens

The photos from my journeys represented a diverse cross section of life. As I traveled, I wanted a method to share them that was worthy of the grit and determination of those pictured. The result was Nomadsight: a temporary street art installment of world photography. Each photograph has a story and honors the loving people of the Earth.

PUBLIC ART

Street Exhibitions

As life goes you are born with out fear and accepting and trusting of all that comes your way.  I arrived in Bilbao as such with my arms open and was received into a home, where I learned those things that are taught through demonstration.  I built relationships, and worked as I said, filtering through and finding what it is that I want and need.  I showed some of my photos to my friends here as I have before, we talked about what I could do with them, what I could do to make some money while I was here.  Through their encouragement and support, I printed 18 8″ x 10″ and 20 3″ x 5″ photos.  Together we matted them on paper and took them to the street to sell, I don’t live in a place long enough to have a show in a gallery in a building, or to have a job to work as a photographer with a studio, this matched my life and for that it made me anxious.  But as we started putting up the photos people started to gather to see…..

The World Shared

These photographs are pasted up in cities all over the world as a way to connect our global community. As global markets seem to grow unrestricted, we are seeing each other more and more as sources for profit.  This is my attempt to raise the sense of global connectedness.
