IN A CONTINUATION OF MY WORK IN PORTRAITURE, THIS VIDEO SERIES EXPLORE THE THEME OF MOVEMENT IN AN EMOTIONAL RATHER THAN PHYSICAL STATE. THE STATE OF TRANSITION FROM ONE STATE-OF-MIND, ONE PLACE IN MEMORY, ONE RELATIONSHIP TO THE NEXT, AND THE FEELING WE GET WHEN WE REVISIT THEM.

THIS WORK IS THE OBSERVATION OF THE RANGE OF EMOTIONS THAT THE SUBJECTS EXPERIENCED WHILE LISTENING TO THE MUSIC OF THEIR CHOOSING. THE SUBJECTS WERE ASKED TO SELECT SONGS THAT THEY HAVE AN EMOTIONAL CONNECTION TO.

MOST OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED SOME EMOTIONAL TRANSITION PERIODS IN OUR LIFE, OFTEN THROUGH PAST RELATIONSHIPS OR OTHER MAJOR CIRCUMSTANTIAL CHANGES. MUSIC, ESPECIALLY SONGS OF LOVE AND HEARTBREAK, OFTEN PLAYS AN INTEGRAL ROLE IN THIS INTENSELY EMOTIONAL PROCESS. THESE SONGS CAN BECOME A SOURCE OF COMFORT AND STRENGTH DURING THESE MOMENTS OF LOVE, LOSS AND LONGING, AND IN TURN, THEY BECOME AN INSEPARABLE PART OF THESE EXPERIENCES.
