Jack Sykes is a travel and street photographer from Leeds, West Yorkshire. He documents the life and culture of the places he visits worldwide by observing and learning from the locals, his goal being to highlight the importance of experiencing life outside of one’s comfort zone. He believes that to truly understand the traditions and culture of a community, one must immerse oneself within it.
Childlike Tendencies was shot whilst studying on a semester abroad in Stuttgart, Germany. The series focuses on the importance of reconnecting with the natural world, and revisiting our childlike state as a way to reimagine how we conduct our lives in the digital age. He believes it is important to make a conscious decision to step away from the Internet, to allow ourselves an opportunity to cleanse our minds, and to combat the negative pressures that today’s society puts on an individual.
