When the Distance is Too Much explores the landscapes' potential as metaphor for an individuals' state of mind. The landscapes act as a projection of human emotion. To portray the tension between our internal self verse our projected, public self, I juxtaposed the confining domestic living spaces with the vast landscapes. The domestic spaces illustrate temporal living conditions and undefined parental roles. This series of images was created in response to the experiances of isolation from family. The work is a representation of a universal human experiance of distance and strain.
