This series of photographs is titled “The Sweetheart”. What began as a Valentine’s Day themed shoot, and was intended as part of another series on which I am working, quickly took on a subtle life of its own. I let go of any preconceptions I may have had going in, and just went with the improvisational interplay among the characters, and allowed the shoot to evolve into a kind of cohesive, sequential action, through and of its own volition. The result is a delightfully absurd, satirical photo essay on the popular reality television series “The Bachelor” and its constant theme on the fickle nature of the heart.
