It’s obviously the nature of departure areas for us to depart, onwards through the transition onto a new destination. Unfortunately, the departure area also signifies a blind rush and frantic, speedy march, continually frisking yourself for tickets or a passport you’re sure could have slipped off planet Earth through a zipped portal!
Enter Daniel Everett’s Departure series that rethinks our perceptions of these environments as areas of functional beauty rather than purely the spaces of organised chaos, high tension and human drama. Departure captures these environments in moments of splendid isolation with a perspective as fresh as a glass of iced water, portraying the minimalist environmental functionality we pass by everyday. Daniel’s subjects here truly look like a collection of un-worshiped chapels of travel.
