Nearly everyone has experienced a break up with their first love, so did I. Mine was five years ago. I was starting to have dreams about him again and I wanted to stop that immidiately. That’s why I confronted myself by cycling from my moms house, where I used to depart, to his. Along the way I shot images. When I was finally there, I felt like a creepy stalker and I was most anxious that he would see me. Fortunately no one did, eventhough. From there I automatically started to cycle to places where we used to walk the dog or just spend some quality time together.
I presented this project on a Dutch TV show about photography in 2015 (Fotostudio de Jong) Link: http://www.vpro.nl/speel~VPWON_1236157~fotostudio-de-jong~.html
