Something I would really love to do is take a series of photographs of coupled exes. Ex-girlfriends, boyfriends, ex-wives with their ex-husbands, ex-high school sweethearts, ex-college lovers, ex-affairs, ex-long distance internet romances. I think its something we all do, as the years go by, we think back on the people we've known and the relationships we've encountered and gone "it seems so weird now that they/we were ever together". I want to document the changes and different directions that these two (perhaps more) people in a relationship have gone through. The two paths chosen, perhaps in spite of a once nurtured and cared for heartbeat in their hands. When people stay together, they grow together, grow with one another, they grow into one anothers lifestyle, personality, routine and aspirations. I want to document separation, two people growing apart.
