Monachopis Part 5

Hi everyone,

I’ve been working on a new series that I call ‘Monachopis.’ From the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, monachopis means ‘the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.’ You can read more about this series and see 8 exclusive images from the shoot in Exclu issue 3. I’ll be posting images from this series twice daily on instagram – you can follow along here.

I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about the ideas behind these images and the items within them. The images below don’t have as many story-like captions as some have in previous posts, but hopefully you’ll get the idea and further captions are to come.

**These images tell a story in a sense, so I encourage you to visit Part 1 Part 2Part 3 and Part 4 before perusing the below.
