The oneworld series by photographer Sjoerd Valks was made in the summer of 2019 on his trip around the world. From Amsterdam to Australia, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji, New Zealand, followed by a short city trip in New York and back to Amsterdam. A good example of pre-covid travel. As it is not apparent or important where the photographs were taken, one could ask: 'Is it really necessary to travel as much as we used to?’.
The oneworld series consists of several subseries;
Aero subseries: whatever is happening on the ground, at some altitude the world is this serene
night & day subseries depict the constant coming of day and night
Drapery subseries shows the flow and glow of fabric, linking ancient and modern
transient subseries: acquiescence
The oneworld series shows everywhere is somewhere and anything can be everything. Whether the frame consists of drapery, structure, flow, it is all equal; oneworld.
