Here is a neat project on the pursuit of freedom and happiness through adventure! I love little creative projects like this. Here is what Alison says about her work: "Born and raised in Southern California, I learned early on that freedom consisted of long family road trips in our wood paneled station wagon. After graduating college, I started my journey of climbing the corporate ladder thinking it would lead me to a better life. Years passed by and I as I made it to the top steps of the ladder, I wasn’t fulfilled. Instead, I felt trapped and uninspired. I decided to give it all up in order to find my creative soul that was lost along the way. To do that, I packed up everything I needed in my car and began to wander across the United States looking for something. What I found was a new appreciation of what is important in life and a better understanding of who I am as a person. I found this through photography. This past April, I took a solo dream trip to New Zealand for three weeks to live in a van. Within hours of landing and during my first stop, all of my possessions were stolen from the van I rented and all I had left was what I was wearing and a few things in my purse. It was a shock to see all of my bags gone, but I really didn’t get that upset since my three most important possessions (passport, wallet and iphone) were on me when the theft happened. For the next three weeks, I took photos every day of the places I came across with my iphone. I wanted to remember what it was like living in the van and looking out to the beautiful scenery every day so I found myself taking photographs from the drivers seat, while framing each image with the passenger window. Each day, the “Vanscape” views were so different from the previous day. I wanted to show a variety of locations to give the viewer a sense of being there, along for the ride."
