“For the past 15 years I’ve photographed my life, my friends and the surroundings I move in. It’s about the longing for closeness, fellowship and love. A search for identity and sexuality and living out at night. A collection of images for not to forget and to keep us together.”
So photographer Märta Thisner summarises her debut book, Drunk in Love. The pictures are not arranged and Märta has only photographed people she has a relationship with and knows. “For me, taking photographs is a very intimate act because I'm pretty shy.”
