“Pavement” is an exploration of the built urban environment and how we respond to it. People rarely look down (or up), yet there is a surprising amount of subliminal message to be found at our feet.
What does the built environment communicate to us? How does it shape the development of culture? How much can we tell about a person from their shoes? Can the pavement be used for dissention? Is it only dogs who piss on the walls?
Influenced by Duchamp’s philosophy of ‘found art’ and the notion of looking for beauty in the mundane and the ordinary, I chose to photograph only found compositions, the little clues and secrets revealed about culture on the pavement.
