Pilgrimage to Nowhere

A three year journey through Asia and the Pacific

There are profound moments or periods of time in everybody's lives and each is unique. For me, the most profoundly formative years of my life came over three years from 2012 to 2015. During this period I lived constantly on the move across Asia and the Pacific on a what really was a pilgrimage to nowhere. It was an exploration of the world and my place inside the chaos and stunningly beautiful place we all call home. 


This was not entirely out of norm for me, prior to this period I had made piecemeal travel stints across the world. However, this step-by-step journey that was done mostly overland shifted my life life in a monumental way and had a sweeping impact on the way I think, interact and where I find myself today. To cap things off, these years were the first where I had discovered photography and storytelling through a long process of trial and error.  


These archival images are part of that pilgrimage to nowhere.
