The Moon Belongs to Everyone In 2008, I embarked on a new life journey, relocating from my homeland in America, across the seas to Australia. At the time, I did not anticipate the personal identity shifts that would eventually materialize with migration. No longer a discernible American, and not exactly Australian, I found myself grappling with the unidentifiable space I had been existing in. I soon realized that there were many others like me, many people who after immigrating to a new country had found themselves living in a cultural "limbo state." The Moon Belongs to Everyone, is an attempt to visualize this increasingly ubiquitous global identity; a non-specific, ever-changing identity positioned in the in-between; an identity suspended amid origin and destination, located at the junction of the dissonant and the lyrical. The subjects of this fragmented narrative hail from different parts of the world; they don’t know one another, nor do they share the same heritage. And yet, they each find themselves caught in a similar liminal space — hovering somewhere between ‘there’ and ‘here.’ Each individual I photographed spoke of having experienced similar uncertainties in the transition from national to global citizen. The landscapes and still-lifes are allegories for place and memory, representative of those the subjects described to me in conversation. Altogether, The Moon Belongs to Everyone, frames a metaphor for the contemporary experience of migration, of shifting continents, and mindsets.
