The Withdrawal: Self Portrait
The Withdrawal is a self portrait project that became part and parcel of healing from a deep love lost. The series is accompanied with poetry.
The following photos are part of a bigger series
Fantasy of a photo
We never took a photo together.
Thus you will only ever live in my memory.
My fear of memory loss intensifies
I might lose you within them
I imagine us in a crowded place
Our love still anonymous to everyone around
And someone clicks and shares
I’d finally have a photo we’re both together
When my memory fails me and I stare at it
Even if I don’t remember you
I sense a warmth and a longing heartache
For someone I never knew
