"A Sense of Place speaks to our hopes, dreams and sense of identity based on place.
The childhood landscape generally is thought to produce a primal landscape that one completely identifies with thus comparing further ideas of
place in one's future.
When we are young we attach ourselves and become
emotionally involved in these spaces. Places take on personality and identity.
Memories get locked into these places even though they are of a different time.
In the series "Sense of Place" I focus on the spaces from my childhood. I
photograph them as I try to remember a different time and place. I explore that
sense of identity and coming of age within a particular landscape. I look for the
emotions in the landscape and explore how these spaces have become almost
stuck in their own past." - Mikhael Antone
