Though it's what I'm most inspired to create, I don't often get the opportunity to model for a more conceptual shoot, so I jumped at the chance to work with photographer Jordana Dale once I came across her beautiful feed on Instagram. Not only are her photos moving, but they also express feeling and a particular inner dialogue.
"I wanted to create something that resonated with me and my need to over-examine every facet of every relationship I've ever had," she said of this photo set. "I guess it's about that, about me wondering why I do what I do in relationships and simultaneously trying to remember and forget what they felt like." With that vision in mind, I found it incredibly easy to work with Jordana, and I am in love with these photos.
The phantom-man, the one hovering at the edges of the photographs, never fully in view, representing the idea of a love long-lost is none other than my camera-shy husband, with whom I just celebrated two years of marriage. He braved his first modeling endeavor just for me, so he's deserving of a shoutout.
Coming soon, part two. xx
