AN ISOLATED OBJECT

PhotographerLisa Sorgini
Entry Description

'An Isolated Object' was captured over a period of two months travelling throughout Europe. Each image aims to present the pronounced discrepancy between the empty and at times aimless veneer of global tourism and the rich cultural and historical memory to be found hidden within the surrounding environment. When viewed as a series, these isolated objects, detached from their context, reveal fragments of a history left behind by its inhabitants,suggesting that the landscape we move within is more than the sum of its physical and or tangible parts.
