Dislocation began as a scouting mission for potential photo essays along some of the world’s less known but great transport routes.
Guy Meachin researched areas that represented for him the furthest places from home. The Russian Arctic, Siberia, Mongolia, China and Tibet formed an epic 12,000-mile route on the map.
Travelling alone and without an interpreter, along roads and railways, the bleak realities and stark landscapes – together with a feeling of isolation – became underlying themes for this series of images.
Guy Meachin has worked within the British film and TV industry for over a decade. At the same time he has developed a body of work exploring the relationship between fine art photography and photojournalism.
For the past two years he has been documenting life in Britain’s overseas territories, including the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic and more recently Montserrat in the West Indies. Both will form part of his next exhibition.
