i took this series a year or so ago when i got really into the documentation of everyday life, i started to notice the silent revolt in the subjects i photographed; an unsettled stillness in them. I’m increasingly aware of a changing energy around me and am interested in trying to document it. my photographs don’t have titles, i was thinking just to number them, there is something subtle and mutable about them and i feel like a title will inflict upon that.
