Viewing single post of blog Place

The spaces where my surveying takes place can be considered non-spaces – railway lines, stations and the train itself – although I do capture images adjacent to these spaces as well. Images of non-spaces show locations that don’t comply with a social, cultural or environmental idea of place, revealing something more concerned with psychological or personal factors; a place localised outside time and space.
