The pandemic changed the way that we communicate and connect. Unable to meet in person, we had no one with whom to discuss our lives, our obsessions and our discoveries. So instead, we made “small talk” through the creation of bodies of work, a tangible yet physically distanced way to speak each other.

This exhibition explores people and places we found interesting, collaborations with loved ones and detours taken from larger projects paused by the pandemic. If our broader practices are the creation of large, sweeping bodies of work, Small Talk is a photographic collection of our short stories.
