The Liminal Points Project is a series of fifteen photographs taken by Nick Rochowski between 2008 and 2011. For Rochowski these images are about disconnecting from the everyday and returning back to his childhood imagination; a place where fear and fantasy can easily manifest into something strange, surreal and even beautiful.

Taken on the grounds of England’s Penn Wood, the area was a place where Rochowski spent much of his childhood. Describing the project, he tells a brief story about visiting these woods as a child:

One of my first memories of the wood was on a family walk.
At one point while playing with my sister I decided to run ahead.
I came into a clearing and then quickly slowed down and stopped as I approached an entrance.
Despite the daylight it was dark at the edge of the clearing where the path continued into the wood.
Fear gripped me for a moment with a vivid thought.
Then we all continued in.

The photographs which Rochowski has taken are really amazing. There’s a rawness and elemental nature to them, and his exploration of place and psyche is particularly interesting. The series is currently available as a book designed by Peter Koo and released through Rokov Publishing. It also includes illustrations by Greg Haynes and music by Deepsea.
