During the cold winter months in Newfoundland, some friends of mine would invite a group of us to go have tea in the woods. They would stop whoever was walking by and give them a proposition: to break their continuously moving routine, to come with them and take a step outside - literally. After such a brief stint of isolation away from the busyness of a daily routine, the body and mind would feel completely rejuvenated. There are parallels between this time outside and the routine of teatime: it is there when you need it, and you leave feeling refreshed. I feel the same connection having a cup of tea with a friend as I do walking alone in a snow covered forest. In being removed from society, the same notions of contentment are applied to nature as well as to a gathered community. In this series, these feelings are represented by tea paraphernalia placed within the context of nature. Both are memories of comfort most people can share in. The absence of the human figure in the images gives the option to imagine ourselves in these scenarios. It becomes a memory for everyone and a reminder of the joy beautiful simplicity can bring.
