“...love lies not in places nor even in bodies but in the spaces between them...”
Lee Smith, “On Agate Hill”
This series really isn’t about Slovenia, or even about Bled, where the pictures were made.
In their essence these photographs are about longing, belonging, and relationships. Perhaps it is because the love of my life died suddenly and far too soon, or maybe it is simply the voyeur in me - or maybe it is both - nevertheless, there are moments when I am completely absorbed by the coupling of others.
The title Dvojina comes from the Slovenian language, which has the unusual feature of having a specific grammatical form for the ‘dual’, referring to specifically to two, as in a couple or a pair.
