Gestures of love.
Thsi Gestures of Love book is a selection of images from the Gestures of Love project.
“Gestures of Love” is a collection of images of fallen leaves on the path to my front door. I noticed the way that sometimes there seemed to be a gesture between them. Sometimes on resting upon another, sometimes just close together. I didn’t arrange any of these groupings, just captured them where they had fallen before they became separated by the rain or the postman’s boot.
The book is made from a single sheet of folded paper. folded in such a way as to create pockets for the images to sit within. The words of the poem are placed singley on each page. In the centre is a hidden pocket which contains the words of the poem printed onto Japanese Washi paper.
