EDITORIAL : TOGETHER A PART20 November 2020
Up until 2020, the shooting practice of Red Rubber Road has always required both photographers – and protagonists – to be present and interact with each other directly. When the COVID 19 pandemic hit at the beginning of 2020, they each found themselves quarantined in different countries and turned to digital devices in an aim to forge a new way to continue their collaboration. Shooting within the constraints of their individual living spaces, they began to investigate how a practice that was brought to life by physical closeness could be carried on in times of social distancing.
In Together A Part : it is no longer merely a window to the virtual world, but a concrete object that metabolizes through the display, connecting, extending and morphing them in a physical way. By blurring their identities within these new parameters, the collective is able to mirror the sometimes cunning deception of digital interaction in relationships, intimacy and sexuality.
