Just Between Us
Just Between Us began in July 2010, when Charlotte and I entered into an intimate relationship. Over the next nine months, I photographed the changing relationship. Sometimes using the viewfinder, sometimes a cable release, sometimes a timer, I "took" moments of exuberance, tenderness and companionship, as well as others of loneliness, vulnerability or remorse, moments in which something of us became visible. It seemed as if the camera entered into the relationship itself, occupying another "position" that was not mine and not hers, but that was under a kind shared, negotiated control. I hope that in some way I have challenged assumptions we usually make about the way the camera looks, marks things "past," distances us from the world, and separates subject from object.
