While technology can connect us across oceans, we’re losing sight of what it means to have a conversation with a friend who truly knows us.
FaceTime aims to create moments of togetherness; a reminder of what it’s like to make eye contact, to feel a genuine smile, face to face. Life lived through a screen is almost a facsimile of life, not life itself.
Over a series of Portrait Sittings at Medicine Bakery, Birmingham, photographer Charisse Kenion will work with members of the community to create an exhibition to be displayed at Medicine this December.
