A selection of images by New York City-based photographer Mark Sommerfeld (previously featured here). Taken throughout 2020, these photographs serve as a visual diary of sorts, reflecting, through insinuations of touch and quiet intimacy, a sense of solitude and longing. “I don’t think it’s a leap to suggest we’re all craving and/or lacking intimacy and touch from lovers and strangers alike,” says Sommerfeld. “Today a friend insinuated they’d empty their bank account to be on a sweaty, crowded dance floor and most days I tend to agree. When was the last time you whispered into someone’s ear who wasn’t in your ‘bubble?’ Too long ago is the answer I’ve come up with.”
