The Agoraphobic Traveller - Street View Portraits
Agoraphobia & anxiety limit my ability to travel, so I’ve found another way to see the world.
I found a surprising and unique refuge in the creative possibilities of Google Street View. I began clicking through Google Maps to navigate to faraway countries like Mongolia, Senegal, and Chile. I found remote towns and dusty landscapes, vibrant architectural gems, and anonymous people, all frozen in time. I was intrigued by the strange and expansive parallel universe of Street View, and took screen shots to capture and preserve its hidden, magical realms.
Now, for a limited time, Google has given me permission to sell a series of limited edition prints with proceeds going towards charity. With the help of Stories for Good, £10 from each print will be going towards the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, a global nonprofit organization focused on improving the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental illnesses.
