‘fragments’ is a photo- graphic series exploring the intimate and how it's shared. it is loosely based on Roland Barthes’ ‘A Lover’s Discourse, Fragments’; this short excerpt is the basis for my photographic practice:
‘There is not only need for tenderness, there is also need to be tender for the other: we shut ourselves up in mutual kindness, we mother each other reciprocally; we return to the root of all relations, where need and desire join. The tender gesture says: ask me anything that can put your body to sleep, but also do not forget that I desire you – a little, lightly, without trying to seize anything right away.’
