Amy Touchette – Us
Us is a collection of people — related and unrelated — who conjoin by adopting each other’s mannerisms, style, or behavior. The act of merging with another is one of the most affirmative patterns of humanity. Although a fairly rare breed, these one-of-a-kind synergisms portray the deep and genuine connection capable in humans, a social theme that often inspires me to photograph. Equally as compelling about this population is precisely how the individuals merge, a range that spans from a mirror reflection to a counterpoint.
