Jet Lag melancholia is a series that explores the feeling of travelling alone. This was an impromptu shoot. My friend Emma and I were in our hotel room in New York and we were discussing the feelings you experience when traveling alone.
There is always a moment when I really feel like I’m left alone in a new city. Each time it feels like i’m starting over again. New people to greet and new streets to explore.
This shoot is based on those thoughts. Capturing those moments, those nights that have passed on by as I look through the window while being confined in a room on the 19th floor.
The district sleeps alone tonight, After the bars turn out their lights, And send the autos swerving, Into the loneliest evening , And I am finally seeing, Why I was the one worth leaving - The Postal Service
