Due to the fact that society imposes social norms, behaviours that fall out of this box are often judged and deemed idiosyncratic. This photograph depicts a quotidian activity comprising of reading the newspaper on a sofa. It is removed from its natural positioning in order to convey a feeling of unease when confronted by a behaviour that is unconventional. The man’s facial expression is relaxed which further pushes the idea that while something may cause discomfort to others socially, it may not do so for the individual.

About Looking 

One can never be completely satisfied by simply looking. Looking creates temptation, deep curiosity and a desire for more. The sensuality of the lighting in this photograph, the location and the woman’s passive position contribute to the viewer’s desire to touch or to at least wonder what it may feel to touch. The viewer and the woman are separated by the shadows of the blinds, which further increases the desire to want more than just a look.

A mini project I shot today about missing home. The idea is that while looking forward in a new city and trying to make the best of it, we also want to hold on to the past and look back at our lives before moving. I’ve been missing home a lot lately, so this is definitely a reflection of my current feelings regarding living so far from home.
