Seeing through foreign eyes

As a newcomer, my desire to preserve and share my first impressions of a new place made me assemble this series of photographs of sites around Columbia. In an attempt to portray the nature of town, I wandered between the real and surreal, objective and subjective, architectural and imaginative. I wanted to capture the angles, shadows and colors that might go unnoticed by those more familiar with the sites.
