Always a little bit together, always a little bit apart.
One of the things I miss the most about us is sitting together in silence. You don’t imagine that being what you’ll miss the most but somehow it is. Just knowing the distance is inches and silence can be broken with a sigh - it’s so comforting.
I wanted to take this picture of Gala and I to capture that feeling of separate togetherness. Dressed in opposite but complimentary colours, laying at a distance on the same bed, an inch from meeting each other’s eyes but immersed in our phones. We’ve always managed to meet in incredible cities (London, Mexico City, Münich, Paris, Stockholm, Marrakech, Amsterdam, etc…) but whatever’s on offer pales in comparison to the worlds we offer one another, the immense possibilities of love and laughter and that beautiful separate togetherness.
“You don’t know about real loss, ‘cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you, I don’t see an intelligent, confident man…I see a cocky, scared shitless kid”
