'...but to emigrate is always to dismantle the centre of the world, and so to move into a lost, disoriented one of fragments.'John Berger
The photographic series is a way of exploring my own state of displacement - self inflicted exile, the experience of being a foreigner and living in a country that is different to the one I grew up in. For the project I would like to do a pilgrimage to the place where I was born and raised - St. Petersburg.
'I sleep badly in strangers' homes and my own life is not near me.' - Osip Mandelstam
