My Men

Let me tell you about the first time I kissed a man.

We were sitting in his car which was parked on a muddy path in a forest above the city. I grabbed him as if I never wanted to let him go. Years of longing for that very warmth and physical presence diminished with every second as I was clinging to him.

Later in my life, I met Rado and Bas. This is a story about my life with them, a document of two relationships.

I probably felt that the three of us were about to take separate paths. These are the images I took in the last months of belonging to them.
