Life as documentary #19:
I am drawn to reading travel books and recall this activity as a rare form of escapism. When travelling I read travel books, not always about the place travelled in or to, but books about journeys exploring displacement through a variety of facets. Travel is a state of being where you are taken out of habitual patterns, away from familiar places, that force conscious thought. This constant state of attention awakens the need to build a space to register differences. The best travel books donít rely on monuments but expose this mental journey into new worlds.
