Nowhere / Now here – features teenagers and young adults against a green backdrop – these places enables us to lose in thought.- They are here, but they are always also there, elsewhere. They are often pictured in green alleys, dressed casually, in an hectic posture and they appear as if caught in an off moment. They appear lost, unaware of the viewer’s gaze and immersed in their own unconscious. The viewer is the only one that gazes freely on the image surface. It is a project that foreshadows transitions; of childhood to adolescence or adolescence to young adults. It emphasize the awkward feeling of non-belonging, of ‘in-betweeneness’. They seem off-center and present at the same time.
