JaguarShoes Collective present YTYKWYA by Tom Kavanagh
The world is full of people trying to find their way, but more than ever, people are lost.
Tom K has been lost for years. A photographer travelling the world and exploring his mind;
taking pictures on the road to nowhere.
Arranged into a surrealist dream-like narrative travel book, ‘You Think You Know Where You Are’ is a guide to being lost.
Full of dead ends and misdirections, a record of the world, where places feel simultaneously familiar and new.
YTYKWYA was realised as a successful book at the end of 2017, now this body of work will take on a new life in an exciting installation at DreamBags JaguarShoes.
Through its dreamy textures and calm studies of familiar places, this show will be the perfect ending to a long hot and hazy summer.
