In May of 2018, with careers, graduate degrees and diverging homes on the horizon for my friends and I, I picked up an old Canon 514XL and set out to capture our last summer together. I saw familiar faces in settings all around the world, and was reminded that real friendship doesn't care where you are. I also came to love a phrase that I heard and said a lot that summer: "thanks for coming". That phrase usually marked the end of time spent with others, but hinted that it wouldn't be the last. I hope that this film does the same thing.
A Huge Thanks and Much Love to:
