Capturing an instant between living souls, of secret messages never to be told. Don't be tom fooled, sometimes even the false can feel tender. Yes tender... and always remember. Yesterdays history, tomorrow's a mystery and today is a gift! That's why we call it (the?) present. The sky is no limit. xox Kimmy
This project centres on intimacy and bondings between people and things.
Within these themes I explored the relationships between myself and the people I’m surrounded with in life, as well as observing strangers and creating collections with objects that hold meanings or spark some kind of emotion within.
The photos were taken over a period of time in a variety of different locations. The ones showcased here are from observational studies, to staged and directed narratives, in order to identify any similarities or differences between the two (or to see if they all merge).
For my final project I wanted to create work that is close to home and has reflections of me within it, which is why I decided to choose such a delicate and quite intrusive theme, as for me, being able to challenge yourself and push yourself to limits of vulnerability in terms of comfort, trust, and all forms of intimacy in life for that matter, is an important part of growth, change and building who we are as people.
I feel like it is extremely important to me so I wanted to find a way of exploring these ideas through my photography, focusing on the people and things that truly matter.
