Picture Tales From A Short Trip To A Small Island

 

A need for, or even an addiction to, relevance: it's the only way to explain the cultural phenomenon that is vacation photography. We want to matter, want to prove we've been places, even if the resulting photos never hold a candle to the actual magic that convinced us to take them in the first place. These stories, while at the heart of our reason for travelling the world, are lost in translation.

In this series, The New Black aims to bring the relevance back to the tales, where it belongs. Yes, the same old scenes are still there, in a way... But by reimagining the tried-and-true concept of vacation photos, new stories that straddle the line between the real and the surreal emerge. Find hotels sprouting palm trees. See a girl dancing in the clouds. Take the trip, see what's beyond.
