Photographer Paolo Morales Captures Moments Of Intimacy And Isolation

Words

New York-based photographer Paolo Morales shot a series titled ‘These Days I Feel Like a Snail Without a Shell‘, which features people longing to reach out and forge a connection with others. The photographs, which typically portray individuals in a domestic setting, evoke feelings of intimacy, isolation and vulnerability. In a statement about the photo series, Morales says: ‘My aim is to draw the viewer into a sustained longing for connection within individual photographs and the people who occupy them. I am in pursuit of pictures where people appear emotionally isolated despite physical proximity.’
