An afternoon with Elly, walking in silence and exploring an inner monologue. Solitude is a blessing, as is the feeling of human connection. A girl walks alone, discovering life’s complexities but eventually finding bliss in isolation.
The clip originally started as a behind the scenes to a recent photoshoot, but I felt it could be more. In editing, I matched Elly’s movement to the music, eventually choosing to run dialogue from one of my favourite scenes of all time from ‘Lost in Translation’. Two people, both lost in their own ways, share stories of life and their current predicaments.
