Outland is a body of photographs that aims to capture and to explore what is being referred to as the 'uncanny'. Described and analyzed by Ernst Jentsch and Sigmund Freud―in psychological terms―in the twentieth century, the concept of the 'uncanny' represents an important aspect of art and culture today, especially in film and photography. Yet the visual construction of uncanniness still remains an open question. Whether it is darkness, the unfamiliar in the familiar, or other factors that make us feel uneasy about images―it is sometimes difficult to identify what exactly makes them uncanny.

United by an unsettling atmosphere, the photographs of the series invite the viewers to analyze the visual elements associated with the 'uncanny' and to question their own gaze.
