Somewhere to get to is about escape and landing in a place of everyday accident. The photographs were taken between 2015 and 2017 in the neighborhoods around John F. Kennedy Airport. The project is loosely based on the poem by W.H. Auden titled, “Musée Des Beaux Arts”, which is embossed on the back cover of the book. The book design is inspired by postcard booklets from the first half of the 20th century.
