We travel for new experiences and leave the comfort and familiarity of our home town to visit different countries and experience different cultures. We may see and experience things for the first time, sometimes cautiously or with trepidation, being wary of the unfamiliar and unknown. How does a traveller balance being independent, exploring and having new experiences and not falling foul of some scam, health risk or mis-adventure? What is happening in the shadows? What is happening behind doors? What is happening behind you? This is one image of a larger series on this theme compiled from various trips.
This image received an Honourable Mention at the 2017 International Photography Awards in the Fine Art: Collage category for non-professional photographers.
