Short Narrative

The title of this work translates into shine together. Often, while in relationships we have to uncover what makes us truly happy ourselves. This is a visual exploration into the complexities of relationships. Aided by the aged wisdom of Charles Bukowski, two friends seek to recreate moments of youth that Bukowski must be reminiscing about when he wrote the last line.

New York City seemed the perfect backdrop for two young lovers trying to find their way through this life together. Though the couple seems sincere and full of promise, the scenes when they appear alone speak to the truth Bukowski arrives to in his old age:  each person progresses alone and no proxy can be used in his place.
