A Language for Intimacy

2020 - Present
Reflections is the beginning and the end of an experience. It is the moment captured in between. Reflections is about the visceral and the sensory, an encompassing exploration that stimulates the body as well as the psyche.

Abby and Andre work in collaboration with friends, artists, and colleagues to create a language to express genuine intimacy. They offer an exclusive look into spaces rarely accessible to the public where sensual interaction occurs, traveling worldwide to capture the act of seeing and being seen, a view of intense and gentle pleasure from boutiques, hotels, and private lofts old and new.
In these encounters, awareness drives the narrative about basic human connections. Drawing upon French humanist street photography Henri Cartie-Bresson and Sabine Weiss, the work is an account of the every day contrasted by the fleeting romance of a brief time spent together. They show a softness and tenderness, an understanding of how, what and where to stimulate. Witness how actions reflect one another. And as self-awareness then oscillates how we reflect upon those actions.
