Almost Interactions

Jacqueline Carroll's avatar Jacqueline Carroll

Somewhere else in the world, someone is looking at a different piece of art, standing there just like you’re standing here. When you ride your bike later, someone else will be traveling on their bike, too. And when you cozy up to your loved one in the quiet hours of the evening, millions of others will be sharing the same energy with their special people. These 35mm film photographs were taken in five countries over the course of fourteen years. None of them were taken in the same place. Italians may be sharing a frame with Americans. Malawians with Spaniards. Germans with, well, who knows? Maybe some of the individuals in these frames are tourists. As I looked through my collection of film from all of these years, one thing became apparent: we are all just a single step away from being together. We are all just almost interacting. As we tiptoe into a post-COVID world, one increasingly filled with vaccinated people, “almost interactions” could become assured and love-filled.
