Whether it’s someone you were in love with, someone you have love for, someone you cherish, losing people is something that affects everyone. I asked various friends what makes them remember someone who they’ve lost. One friend said it was little things like music, smells, and food. Another friend said they remember someone who they’ve lost through things that the person was obsessed with or liked. For me, it’s places that I have been to with that person. For a split second, I can almost imagine that person in a bookstore or some other place. Through this photo series, I tried to evoke that fleeting sensation of feeling like someone is still right there with you. People continue to live in the memories you have of them, and that’s what this photo series is about.
