Photographic Thesis is a 2nd year course in which NAIT Photographic Technology students such as I choose a topic based on strong personal interest or area of specialty. I spent months brainstorming several different ideas for thesis topics. In the end I knew that the photographs I love capturing involve people and landscapes. Thus Wanderlust was born.
Each Thesis had to consists of a pre-determined 15-20 photographs based on a specific topic or theme. The inspiration behind my Thesis topic was derived from the definition of the word "Wanderlust" (n.) A strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world. My story takes place on my two month solo backing adventure around Europe last summer. Highlighting on breathtaking vast landscapes, combined with powerful portraits captured of lone travellers.
This journey would not have been possible from the love and support of both family and and friends who helped me out along the way. This project helped me dive deeper into understanding not only myself, but more so other people and places around me. If my story helps share anything to the world I wish it to encourage at least one person to drop everything, strap on a backpack and just go...
I hope you enjoy.
