You know that feeling where you look at a piece of art and think, “Man, I wish I made that”? That’s exactly how I feel about this photo essay shot by Chrissie White (in collaboration with Elvia Carreon) for The Photographic Journal. Such a well-thought out series. Such great tension. A little bit of quirk. I really am blown away.

“Hours go past so slowly and a curious behavior exposes itself in the face of solitude. The true nature of our being emerges when absorbed in the comfort of familiarity and home. It is within this space, that we feel compelled to play.”

I was talking to a friend last week and she told me how good visual art is like a massage for your eyes. A funny statement? Yes, but I totally understand what she means. Do you get that feeling too, friends?
