A young, blonde, white woman runs in the middle of a residential street towards the camera on the left side of the image. She is wearing a grey sweater with white collar and a car light behind her illuminates her long white skirt. The image is cool-toned and tinted green.

The intricacy and art of colour and cinematic lighting fascinate me. I wanted to venture into the world of night photography and hoped to create a narrative that feels like a movie but reads like a photo series.

A young woman reflects on her night in several parts, contemplating if her memory is accurate or if the events played out differently in real life. She wonders how she got there and where she will end up next – much like my own creative process.
