I love the very composed and deliberate nature of these images that take place in the everyday – retaining control of the cable release and including it in the images.Â The restrained background noise doesnâ€™t inhibit the reading, in fact every component adds to it, like part of a mis-en-scene familiar to cinema where the director uses props and locations to enhance the essence of the story. From the surrounding elements, like fruit, play parks, painting utensils, we can deduce information about the existence of the subjects but they arenâ€™t just clues, they are also symbols, characteristics and idiosyncrasies of their life together. Things that we all have equivalents of.
