Ross Evertson

by whitewirestudio

Ross Evertson is an artist and designer from Toronto. One of his projects, Connection, reminds me of Richard Renaldi’s Touching Strangers that I posted a couple months ago. While Renaldi’s questions how we understand our physical relationship to another stranger, Evertson’s focuses on the romantic belief that there’s an intrinsic bond between the artist + subject. In each image, he holds the hand of the individual while he takes their photo, “literalizing the fabled connection.” I love that Evertson’s physical involvement is not always clear in the photo.
