Overview
What does intimacy mean to you? Reflections of Intimacy is a theoretically artistic and photojournalistic exploration into the subject and practice of intimacy; and the path of connection it opens. Reflections of intimacy draws from media studies and critical theory in its framework. Through reflection, I aim to peel back a few layers of intimacy and in doing so, hope to expand the liminal bounds of the seemingly private subject within the public sphere. At the end of this book you will walk away with a new perspective on intimacy, its permutations in practice, and a showcase that explores the beauty of vulnerability.
