"Private moments" by Carla Meyer-Kleynhans
Moments of intimacy, curiosity, and vulnerability from mundane day-to-day life have been captured, and attempt to offer the viewer an insight into a deeply personal journey – one that attempts to emphasise the still moments of normality captured within the chaos of a marriage, a relationship, and an evolutionary gender transformation. For many, evolution speaks to a great change – a big bang. For others, it is steeped in the quietness of the self as one attempts to navigate personal transformation.
Shallow breaths, and timid whispers in the darkness speak to our greatest fears and desires. Life decisions made in supermarkets, or in the car on the way home from work. These are the moments that make or break us. Yes, there is therapy, there are doctor’s appointments, there is the signing of documents, and the periodic outburst to society for change. Yet, the greatest of transformations occur within the least likely of places. It is this that speaks to the intimacy of the mundane. After all, change is a process – and there is revolution in evolution.
