  • A look back on half my life ago, who I wanted to be. Love and longing - lost friendship, belonging, the fear of touch, a magical embrace, a spell to dispel. Hands become a moment of realization - an intense feeling like no other - you realize you love her, but can never have her. A DIY exploration of turning the camera on oneself without the ability to see the frame. Shot on 16mm with an underwater camera, and a broken viewfinder. Singing songs (badly) that I remembered from years ago, trying to recapture the moments and feelings. An experiment in trusting instincts and embracing insecurities.
