Series One

This short series of portraits explores five creatives, documenting what happens when attitude and ability combine. There’s something distinctly human about doing what we love, a beautiful seriousness with which we do it. We devote ourselves, committing everything to be there. I started this project just wanting to be inspired, and I have. I hope Series Two will follow soon.

My aim was to produce six films, but due to the unexpected circumstances that have impacted us all, I have chosen to release where I had gotten to so far — five films, for now — all filmed prior to any lockdown measures. Although not at all by intention, it’s fitting that each film is set in my friends’ respective homes, just getting on in their private bubble as many of us now find ourselves having to, too. They’ve all inspired me greatly, and perhaps they might hearten you as well.

Stay safe. — Tai-li
