The Third Wheel

This project tells the story of a trip I took with my best friend and her partner at the time to LA and San Francisco. It was at a time I really felt the need to get away from London, and the opportunity to join them came up, so I became the official third wheel of their trip together for two weeks.

However, the project took proper form months after coming back, once my friends had already broke up. I had lots of pictures that I wanted to put together in a way that it wasn’t a regular travel diary, and with their love story having finished, I realised I could do an edit as a sort of tribute to their relationship, and my own interpretation of their problematics as a couple, that I experienced while spending time with them.
