How do clothes feel on your skin? SKIN captures women’s relationships with their wardrobes and seeks to move the conversation from how clothes look to how clothes feel. Skin offers an intimate, personal but also a collective sensory experience.

Captured while shooting commissioned portrait photography, Nowstalgia experiments with the feelings of familiarity both present and lost, that is so comfortable and soothing, but just out of reach. The series presents sweet childhood and parenthood moments to drown in.

LENOR

FILM

A script rooted in the simple insight that there is very little more that brings people comfort and happiness than fresh sheets after a long week at work. The comforting sensations of fresh clean fabric are translated through soft delicate visuals and warm textured light. Intimate sound design further immerses the viewer into the bliss that Lenor can bring to their life.
