What is the relationship between two people?       



What is the relationship between two people? (SPACE BETWEEN)

I examine the relationships of my closest friendships, using simple objects in a white space, I photograph this interaction of two people together. Later examining the shape of the space each pair maintains. How do we move around each other? Can that movement be deciphered like an alphabet, like a language of connection?

In the pause of a sentence—space is everything—each pair begins to form a personal alphabet—a personal sentence structure.

What is revealed in our movements and the space we hold? These images together form a language of intimacy. What is the relationship between two people? What do they know about each other? What is their secret? And even more exciting—what do I (as the witness) know that the subjects do not know?

We have multiple relationships in our lives that form our community. It is through our relationships that we understand ourselves. Each person is a mirror to us, and each person mirrors something different about our character. When we look at those friendships individually and then as a whole we are putting together the puzzle of who we are as a whole.
