Prompt: I was tasked with photographing type across the city to then create a poem. This poem was then turned into a video using Premier Pro.

My inspiration for this project was a fling I had with a very handsome chef during the past few months. I found the word chef on a sticker and decided to build it from there. Without getting too personal, the fling was intense and beautiful in many ways, and I think I successfully represented this balance of beauty and chaos within my video.
