Brooklynn Kascel – Fear/Loving : A personal narrative of aging, intimacy and separation. « burn magazine

Fear/Loving is a self-reflective body of work, encompassing experiences shared by those closest to me. Fear of abandonment has been a weight I have carried my entire life, emerging into reality during my early twenties following the separation of my parents after 26 years of marriage. This divided union began to divide me. Investing time and energy into another person became unattainable; expressing my feelings toward another, crippling. Photographing became my coping mechanism, evoking emotional and physical connections which were previously undiscovered. I started becoming a witness to my fears taking hold of others just the same.
