"Look into my eyes so you know what it’s like to live a life not knowing what a normal life’s like." - Short Term 12 (2013)
When I was younger, my mother tried to get me an agent because I was always singing and dancing, but whenever she took me to an audition, I would just shut down. By high school, I was telling everyone, “Oh, I’m going to be a doctor when I grow up,” because my dad was always saying to me, “Pick a career path where you’re always going to be necessary.” But by junior year, I was president of choir, I was the lead in the school play, and I just loved being onstage performing. I literally had a breakdown because I’m not big on denying myself the things that I want, and I knew I was going to do it anyway. So it was coming to terms with the fact that my life was never going to be stable. I’d never know where the next job was coming.
'Tis better to have loved and lost. Than never to have loved at all.
Margaery’s kindness had been unfailing,
and her presence changed everything.

Australian photographer Ward Roberts has caught our eye, with his older series of work titled, Courts. In a beautiful collision of line, colour and symmetry, the series documents the simultaneously dense and empty expanses of sporting fields and courts around the world. Once populated and well-used, Courts makes a quiet comment on our indoors-y tendencies and abandonment of outdoor activities.
We’re drawn in by the bold pastels, colour codes and beautiful architectural structures which surround and complement the environments.
