three feelings more than us by Rona-Keller three feelings more than us by Rona-Keller
    "We only write about two feelings: one is the first day of summer when you and all of your friends are standing on the edge of a cliff watching the sun set and being overcome with all of your hopes and dreams at once. The other is when you're walking alone in the rain and realize you will be alone forever."
    - The Drums

My sister is the best for doing this with me. She was involved in so many parts of this photo, from developing the idea in the first place to covering my face and her arm in newsprint, and all the other steps along the way like putting water on the paper snippets every few minutes because it was a lot harder to realize than we had imagined, and her arm being so cold she couldn't move it after removing them. There's not many people you can do stuff like this with. (:
In the beginning this photo idea was only supposed to be part of a series for my uni application, mostly to picture studying and the stress that comes with it. But in the process it became so much more. My sister is moving to Munich tomorrow after always being in reach ever since she moved out a few years ago, and it made me look at this photo with different eyes. Now it's about connections and being there for each other, support and a very strong bond. And about a lot more that I can't quite comprehend right now, but that maybe you are able to see.

(a few outtakes)

So sad. :( I'm the older sister and I don't know what I'd do if I moved away or my sister moved away... >.<
Its a lovely photograph :heart: Creative idea too. But...The tear... Is that photoshoped or are you actually crying...? I have only met a handful or people who can cry on demand. It looks pretty real.
:XD:

It took me more than a year to reply to your comment and I am really sorry about that, things got quite busy at some point!
Fun fact about the tear: It wasn't meant to be there in the first place, so I didn't really cry. But it isn' photoshopped either! We added lots of water to the paper snippets, so that they would stay on my sister's hand, and so the tear came from that. :aww:
Thank you so much :hug:
