My twin, Milo Travers.
This photograph was taken on a trip to Berlin, Germany. The image is with friends I went with. It shows a moment of calm from the trip but that trip was emotional and life changing for me. My grandmother escaped Germany in 1939 to avoid religious persecution from the Holocaust. During my time there, I was able to retrace where her and her family lived, fled from, and died. I produced a series of work that wouldn’t have manifested if I hadn’t visited and hadn’t been surrounded by supportive, creative people.
This photo was taken in Göteborg last year. It had been the best trip I made so far, with the best person I thought i’d known.
I’m not with this person anymore so now every photo carries sorrow within itself and is quite a shame - but I can still find something beautiful in this image and the atmosphere that I had felt.
