When a love doesn’t flourish the way we dream it to do, it destroys us. It can haunt us for years and years. The idea behind this shoot was to explore the reality of relationships and to break down the romanticized notions of what we think love should be.
This relationship ends.
This is a journey that takes us from one void to another, pulling us deep into everything in between - from all the magic conjured by being uninhibitedly, recklessly, and blissfully in love, to the reverse realization that we were never meant to complete each other - that we didn’t deserve to use one another to fill the voids we needed to fill on our own.
ultimately, it explores the possibility that a real love does not necessarily end in forever. The universe dictates when people come into our lives, how long they stay, and when they leave - for specific reasons that are up to us to figure out. Each person teaching us that much more about love, about ourselves, and about how much we’re capable of feeling as emotional beings.
These pieces will invoke feelings of comfort, warmth, and nostalgia as well as restlessness, emptiness, and heartbreak.
This is that time we loved like kids.
