The Ley Lines Project is a documentary of the areas around the world where Ley Lines run and the communities that live in them.

Ley Lines are the invisible energetic lines around the world that connect different points of energy.

Within these points of energy, different vortexes exist that harbor a concentrated amount of energy.
This energy is believed to give the person presence, a sense of consciousness not normally achieved by us on a regular basis. It leans towards the realm of being present.

This extreme flow of energy has been related to movements in the tectonic plates, exuding energy from the earth’s core, while also being related to cosmic activity and the effect of that energy in our world. There are also connections to magnetism and electricity that I would like to explore in relation to this energy.
However this energy exists, it can be felt in full force within these vortexes.

There have been changes physically to the land in these areas. One example has been the growing patterns in trees. The bark has been seen to grow in circles and other formations rather than straight. This has been put down to conflicting energies.

This evidence proves the extent of these forces - even if we cannot feel it. There are people who can sense the movement in the energy and will be able to map out these vortexes based on pure intuition. We all have this connection to this energy but with the differences in our cultures and life’s, we have simply forgotten how to connect.

People will travel the world over to come to places in search of healing energy and the connection to a force that feels infinitely bigger than we are. With Reiki Masters knowing of the benefits of the Universal Life force and comparisons of the Ley lines being made to different religions such as ‘Dream lines’ in the Aboriginal cultures and in China as ‘ Dragon Lines’, there are many understandings of the energy and its different effects on different parts of the world.

One aspect of this project that I want to explore is the relation of the high-energy vortexes and their impact on my camera and photographs. I do believe that energy can be kept within a medium to be felt by others and experience it. I am interested - in the same way that orbs appear in photographs - to see if there is a residue left in the images.

The other aspect of the project apart from the landscapes will be the investigation of the towns and communities that live in these areas, their response to the land and there ongoing experience of connection from living within these vortexes.

I wish to explore many places around the world in the years to come that these Ley Lines inhabit. 
Historically, it is more commonly known that sites of importance lie on these lines. I will be mapping out my own path and investigating.

The background of this project is coming from wanting to explore my connection to the earth and to rekindle that idea of spirituality in my own life.

I will be shooting the project in both Large and Medium format film to be able to correctly respond to the landscape meditatively.

I just feel very strongly about my need to produce this body of work. 
Photography has allowed me to make sense of a lot of things that otherwise I may not have and has definitely given me a strength that I cannot seem to source from anywhere else. I believe it does this for many people. 

This project feels like the beginning of something much bigger than me and I already know that I will do anything it takes to make this a reality.

I have asked for $6000 to be able to get the project started but as I am anticipating this project to go on a few years, I will need to source funding again at some point. It will be used at the moment, to fund film and equipment, processing and output.
