Three young women, three different styles, three different personalities -- unified by a single thread. 

With a photographer of evident calibre, synchronized blazers and a location to fit into the picture, we had our eyes set on telling a story, one that has strung the three of us together. We have so much to say, so much to share, but such a thin line to walk on. This I witnessed when we were seated around a cafe one afternoon trying to put our thoughts into words, and, within the strength we hoped to disperse, there is vulnerability and fragility in worried eyes and shivers.

No matter, I decided. 

Meet Min, meet Phoebe, meet May -- birds of a feather flocking together, trying to break out of a cage.

When hobbyists come together, an alternative, experimental sort of something is borne. 

This series of photographs was taken by Arif Rafie, a 16-year old with a camera and too much time in his hands. We pondered the vicinity of an old 80s bowling alley as dusk approached, the rundown, corroding walls fuel for our aesthetic joy. People flocked in and out of the fast food joint beside it as we crunched through gravel, their turning heads stopping us in our tracks occasionally. We exchanged glances of sheepish discomfort throughout the process.

When hobbyists come together, a bond of mutual respect, an almost laughable form of comprehension, is formed.
