The conversation between our two protagonists continues on. From rats’ alleys to a game of chess…

‘The ivory men make company between us’. It seems there is a distance that had settled between these two people. They need a game to bridge it, to fill in that emptiness. ‘Pressing lidless eyes and waiting for a knock upon the door’. Methinks there is an unwelcome visitor returning…soon.
Here are our two heroes, two people with a white elephant between them.

When I saw this image, there seems to be such a gap between that woman and the seated man looking at her. I feel this is so evocative of their relationship. I paired this vintage photograph with a black and white image of warriors – the ivory men so to speak. I love how the valet of the vintage playing card peeks through.

Next week we will learn more about the visitor. See you then.
