‘lone’ is an ongoing body of work surrounding a loss of touch. At current, our society has become rather familiar with a sense of solitude, isolated from the ones we used to hold close. This body of work explores this melancholy feeling in a diaristic manner, capturing personal moments of silence, craving an embrace. Absence quietly dominates this visual series, documenting still frames through a reality of distance, yet a desire for connection; it has acted as a form of therapy in some ways. Working tactically with analogue and instant film enables a raw and private narrative to be conveyed and hopefully supply comfort to others - introducing ‘lone’.
