Photographs from where you'd rather be ... New York based photographer Olya Matvieieva has spent the past four years capturing analog images of nature and the sea. Choosing sparsely populated places as her subjects - silent, isolated corners - she travelled to Big Sur in California, an area that has appealed to artists and writers like Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac and overlooks the mighty Pacific Ocean. Here Olya felt like she had found her home. "It was the most memorable trip and maybe when I'm older it would be great to retire there. Red woods all the way to the ocean, what else do you need?!"
