slightly/pretty close

slightly/pretty close is an ongoing series I began as a means to document my everyday life. It’s a chance to show my emotions in a time where I’ve been hiding them. It’s also a chance to connect these feelings with the cultural and physical landscape around me. In these images, a new version of my surroundings is pieced together: a more honest version, where my emotions are front and center.
