It’s Good to Be Needed
is a photography project exploring the possibilities afforded by a simple gesture of physical intimacy between ex-partners. In this project, I am photographing queer women who are ex-partners, but who are not friends, holding hands with each other. The aim of the project was to provide participants with an opportunity to engage in a moment of discomfort/vulnerability and to experience what happens when you perform intimacy despite time and distance and hurt and conflict.
