PART TWO:

REMOTE, WILD, & SURREAL

FINDING PICASSO IN NATURE

Many of the locations and scenes you’ll find on the Remote Unknown have an almost fantastical quality to them, and that’s not by accident. Hollis and Meesh seek out places in particular that possess a little something extra: “We are constantly inspired by the beauty of nature and otherworldly locations, where the geology is just something so special. Like nature's Picasso, in a sense; we love surreal subject matter.”

It might not be a coincidence that Meesh has always been fascinated with space, commenting, “Books like Carl Sagan’s ‘Cosmos’ have made me truly realize how much of a speck of dust our lives are in the vast cosmic arena.” She adds, “I think this really hits home to think about: every single day is special, and every single day should be used to do something that fuels us and drives our passion in every way. Life is really way too short to fixate on what the future holds; you really have to live in the now.”

That love of the surreal and humility before the scale of nature informs not only the places they seek and the shots they choose, but also the manner in which they commune with nature and what they hope others may also take away from it through their art: “A weird, lovely, fantastic object like a sandstone arch, or a picturesque narrow canyon, has the curious ability to remind us and startle our senses.

“LIFE IS REALLY WAY TOO SHORT TO FIXATE ON WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS; YOU REALLY HAVE TO LIVE IN THE NOW.”

It's those collections of moments and euphoric feelings that make life travelling on the road all worth it. Most people live their whole lives waiting or looking forward to these moments to happen on a yearly vacation, when we are living them every single day.”

 

“More or less, it's about a feeling; it’s about being in tune with nature and a deeper understanding of this Earth as a whole.”
