Driftwood Intimacy

06032014-DriftwoodIntimacy-JuliaLuckettPhotography-51

Two of my favorite photographers, Nan Goldin and Kelli Connell, focus on intimacy in their work. The more I study their images, the more I feel their work touches on the elusive quality that surrounds friendship and love. This summer I wanted to create a photograph for Anisocoria that touched on my own experience with intimacy.

I decided to create an image that was more fantastical rather than documentary, so when I found this driftwood on the shore I knew it would be a fitting location.
