FILM FOR HER
(November 17, 2020)
Poetry on paper
6.2 x 9.2
With both pen and lens, Orion Carloto captures the dreamlike beauty of memory. Carloto invites readers to remember the forgotten and reach into the past, find comfort in the present, and make sense of the intangible future.
"Existing between comfort and desire, you don't realize how valuable a moment is until the years have passed and time slips in between your fingers. There's a special kind of pleasure that comes with appreciating the mundane—the highs and lows begin to feel useless compared to all the in-betweens. Funny how nostalgia shows up in different forms the older you get. Film for Her is a reflection of all of the instances in my life where I found beauty and poetry in the most ordinary places. A story book of people, places, and memories captured on film. An ode to my youth, a supercut of dreams, and an homage to growing up. In a world where we have become so obsessed with trying to survive, I hope these words serve as a gentle reminder that it's okay to simply live."
