In his project statement, Simon writes: “In intimate portraits of couples, I explores the question: What is it like for other people my age to be in a relationship? In constant reference to my theme of partnership, I show my protagonists in private moments. In addition to the portraits and momentary glimpses of the couples, written conversations provide insights into the aspects of the individual relationships that cannot be visualized”.
