The Book “Hers & His” is an archive of photographs that details the first year of two young adults’ relationship. Inspired by a conversation on the topic of memorabilia, the couple quickly set out to document aspects if their relationship as the first year gradually rolled onwards.
Due to an illness, known as Fibromyalgia, Elizabeth suffers from memory impairment. This renders her ability to memorize events and people to a poor state. Though this project, Elizabeth attempts to preserve the new found love through photography for future days.
The project, as a whole, explores the various aspects of a new relationship and all the fascinating discoveries two people will uncover over time. Aspects such as; intimacy, adventure, self-discovery, the growth of love and ultimately trust.
Despite having personal connotations, this project has had, and continues to have, a considerable fan base online. The majority of the published photos from this archive were designed to portray the subjects as anonymous in the hope that their viewers not only enjoy the photography but see an aspect of themselves within the images. In the book, those images are marked with the amount of Tumblr notes they’ve received (at the time of publishing the book); integrating the personal and public aspects of the artists lives.
