"Atlas of Memories"

"This is a series of images based on memories of real places and/or dreams I have of landscapes. Each piece is a map or guide to one of these memories. Some images depict a bird's eye view of the place, as if from a plane or a drone, while others are more abstract depictions where colors are more important than realistic details."

- Peter Anderson
