Jennifer Brookes: The greatest thing about flying in a plane is that there really is no capturing it. How do you recount the intensity of an airplane lifting off of the ground in photographs? It’s impossible. This is a poor summary of my flight from my home in Colorado to my home in Washington, which, in truth, was hardly spent taking pictures, but was instead spent in good conversation. Coincidentally I was seated next to Doug Allen, a professor at Eric’s University, who was kind enough to entertain me with stories from his travels and share his much fancier camera equipment with me to shoot a few of the pictures you see here. His company was a short-lived distraction to a feeling you could probably file under melancholy, after leaving (for the first time after being reunited) those that I love very much.
Eric Peterson: The idea for this whole project came last summer when I travelled to Seattle to visit Jenny. One night as we laid down, she pulled out her camera and asked me, “Do you want to see the past three months of my life in fast motion?” and she proceeded to hold down a button on her camera as it cycled through every photo. My only thought was something along the lines of, “This is amazing, how can I be apart of this?” A little over a month later, we put together our first piece remotely; it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that we actually got a chance to combine our halves in person for the first time. I dropped Jenny off for her return home last Friday. Airports are probably one of my favorite places to be, but that trip was bittersweet. I recorded this week’s piece the following day. Miss you, Jenny.
