From Jen Davis’ artist statement for YIELD Magazine:
During the past year and since the publication of ‘Eleven Years,’ I found that most of what I wanted to say in the work had been said, and I was interested in taking a break from the intensity of looking at my own body. With the new images I am searching for a way to explore the intimacy of my first serious relationship and the notion of being in love. My hope is that the photographs do not fall into a category of sentimentality. I have yearned for this experience my entire adult life, and with the aid of the camera I have begun to see what these shared and alone moments mean to me as a woman in her 30s, stepping into our experiences rather than my own.
