Joris Vandecatseye, born in 1983, lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent in 2005. Joris often documents his walks throughout European and American towns in scrapbooks. He currently has 26 of scrapbooks of his travels.
These photographs were made during a six week road trip through the US. We set off in Atlanta, crossed the southern states, and arrived in San Francisco by the end of May, 2013.
I could define my way of working as one of free expression and aimless wandering. Strolling around and identifying situations, compositions and details of the world surrounding us. Isolated in the frame of the photograph and cut off from the context I transform a banal reality into something enigmatic.
