A COUNTRY IN TRANSIT
An evening with travelling photographer and writer Savannah Fortis
Doors open at 18h.
“Change is situational. Transition, on the other hand, is psychological. It is not those events, but rather the inner reorientation or self-redefinition that you have to go through in order to incorporate any of those changes into your life. Without a transition, a change is just a rearrangement of the furniture. Unless transition happens, the change won’t work, because it doesn’t take.” William Bridges
‘A Country In Transit’ is a visual travelogue created by photographer and writer Savannah Fortis, that captures nine months of being in transit in Bulgaria, while exploring the underlying theme of transition.
You are neither here nor there.
You are right in between.
You inhabit no real place.
Yet you are everywhere.
All at once.
You are in transit.
‘A Country In Transit’ project naturally came to fruition on a bus and is comprised of photos all taken in Bulgaria while in transit from one place to another; walking to the store, walking to the bus, on a stop over, or just simply waiting to go somewhere else.
‘I hope to challenge viewers to dig into their own experiences and thoughts regarding transition and Bulgaria.’
The project is completed on 35mm film.
‘A Country In Transit’ book will be for sale on Amazon or through her personal site this summer of 2018.
