Sistagraphy invites you along for a wanderlust ride and dialog about travel. Our intent is to get you to think about what constitutes travel and encourage you to expand your vision to how borders (perceived and real) impact our daily lives.
Robert Louis Stevenson writes in Travels with a Donkey, "I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." One can read this and presume Mr. Stevenson was talking about travel in the traditional sense, that being from one destination to another. But let’s expand our thinking and look at the ways in which one can travel. Travel may not be limited to the physical movement of the body. We can always travel in our minds, we can travel in our spirits, we can travel within our hearts.
In this current climate of Corona and Black Lives Matter, we find that on a daily basis, our very lives can be impacted by the choices we make to travel…or not. We are impacted by the borders we have in our hearts, our minds, our geography and our lives. Sistagraphy hopes that through the images we’ve produced, viewers will come to discover that the only real “border” is the one we place around ourselves.
