Andrew Phelps at work

"When travelling in foreign countries I'm fascinated by both that I discover the exotic and the everyday objects. Often it is one and the same, especially where the gap between old and new is astronomically big. What does it mean, deceiving oneself to operate on documentary fotography? I catch  myself chasing my own preconceived, mental suggestions of the appearace of one place all too easily... At best I can tell the story of my journey and thereof how I react to a spot visually  -  a spot, that I don' t necessarily grasp.  It is the story of my misunderstanding (...)." (Andrew Phelps)
