The small things

18th September 2020

They were a volatile couple with a love/hate relationship that was endearing and
confusing. I adore the untouchable distance of any relationship to an outsider. It’s like watching someone sleep.

Throughout my time working on ‘The Cracker’ relationships formed and crumbled just as they do in adult life. When I took this image, I needed to focus on the subtle elements. The bracelet, the gestures, the interaction. They hold the mystery of a narrative.

I miss working immersively. I miss the organic way that things appear and often I don’t even notice until I look back on an image.

For now, I occasionally drag my feet on a pointless walk to reflect and remind myself to just ‘see’ again. I wonder when I can dive back into feeling ‘in’ a project. I’m losing patience…oao x
