The stories vapour trails tell 
To some, they’re just random lines in the sky. But I’ve always been fascinated by the stories that vapour trails tell.  
These apparently random lines are anything but. They may be ephemeral - lasting but a few minutes, at best, before disappearing. But for those few moments, they tell a fascinating story of connections.   My photographs are an attempt to visualize these stories - the “knitting” of people, places and cultures that happens right above our heads without us ever being aware.    The patterns I’ve used are intentionally exaggerated and fanciful. They reference an almost old-fashioned knitting pattern, forcing us to reconsider something that usually passes entirely unnoticed.
