Yearning is about gay meeting places, here shown in a park in Amsterdam. With these photo’s I wanted to show a softer side to these spots. It is not just about sex, it is about a yearning to intimacy, a yearning to be yourself. This other side to these meeting places are usually overlooked. I embroidered the images with pink thread to create the outline of men having sex. You have to look closely to see them, adding a layer of secrecy.
