Themselves

We’ve met years ago and in my memory we had one date. We took some photos, slept together and then we lost sight of each other for years.

A while ago we started following each other on instagram, we started talking again and Chris asked me to photograph him for a school project.

I had forgotten how well Chris is doing on a photo and as a photographer I fell in love again. It is very inspiring to have such an autonomous person around you, to see how someone doesn't care about the existing gender roles and to see how someone is just themselves. So when I was asked to participate in an exhibition I didn’t hesitate to ask Chris. After a few weeks of doubting, I decided not to use the photos for the exhibition but to make a separate series of them because that’s what the photos and Chris deserved.
