About ‘Borealis’ – words by Raphael Gaultier: 

Borealis is an ongoing photo series centered around the ways in which cities change, and how this effects the ways in which we interact with one another. As the spaces we frequent begin to change, our way of life begins to lose cultural authenticity and new ideas. This series explores our return to old belief systems in the face of unbridled shifts in everyday life.
