Junrei (巡礼 / Pilgrimage) follows the loose narrative of a journey, both physical, from England to Japan, and emotional as a series of personal experiences following an innate gravitation towards Japanese culture. The series of fragmented snapshots hint at the process of travelling yet offer neither an indication of a final destination nor an explanation of anything achieved. Dealing with the conflict between estrangement and comfort found in the isolation from the culture and places visited, the series is motivated by the spiritual pilgrimages common in the cultures represented.
