In this booklet, The Road Is Not Straight, is a series of photographs taken on travels in Africa, Asia and Europe. Collectively the images aim to construct a non linear narrative that portrays a sense of isolation in somewhat familiar environments. The image contents are familiar in their make up yet foreign to the photographer. Instead of photographically documenting  a tourist ideal  the photographs concentrate on the  mundane and banal resulting in a  series of memories. These images could all of  been taken in one region thus emphasising the theme which  resonates throughout the pages.
