Hyper local Is a play on the photographic term "Hyper Focal" defined as, "the Hyper Focal distance is the closest distance at which a lens can be focused while keeping objects at infinity acceptably sharp". So by aiming our cameras at our own neighbours outside our own doors we can explore the city and the borders with heightened clarity. Each photograph is paired with an image shot from the same location.
