“Away,” (which can also be thought of as “A way”) is a view over an Amsterdam canal. Though based on a real trip, it feels like a dreamy memory to me. I was inspired by the places we associate with love and happiness, and also how we tend to idealize them. I think about time a lot, so by preserving a moment like this one in Amsterdam, I feel at peace.
