Perhaps the most meaningful moments in life occur in the "spaces in between" the so-called "significant" events. Upon reflection, we may find as much fulfillment in an interaction we have with a stranger, or in the observation of a shared moment between others, as we do in a friendship, or the love of a family member or significant other. This work is about the moments around; in between; underneath and in the corners of life, that are so easy to overlook. This work is a documentation of the uniqueness of the human spirit and empathy.
