I stumbled on this quote somewhere, and it perfectly sums up my feelings right now. This is something I’ve always felt to a degree; an inexplicable itch, a nervous energy, a claustrophobia of remaining in one place for too long. Perhaps it’s running away from commitment or real life, but I like to think of it as a need for adventure, exploration and discovery. A discontent when things get complacent and familiar, a wish to challenge yourself, learn new things from new people and be surrounded and enveloped in new cultures. In a sense it’s what makes me take photographs, that constant wish to escape and see something new and document it. Running away is a way to develop myself and constantly challenge my preconceptions and push my boundaries, and for that I’m grateful. I hope I never lose the urge to run away.
