Troy Gronsdahl, Ways of Looking (Emma Lake, Venice, Paris, Banff)
Black and white photographs, 2.5 x 3.5 inches
An ongoing series of self-portrait photographs conceived around notions of travel, disorientation, and the search for meaning. The photos are taken in a variety of locations, including architectural landmarks, tourist destinations and cultural spaces. By giving equal treatment to historical sites and more generic tourist destination, I aim to expose gaps in understanding across historical and cultural contexts. The title refers to John Berger’s book, Ways of Seeing.
