A weekend or two ago I photographed some behind-the-scenes images for a new film called Hyperspace, directed by Taegen Carter. This is Kelly, who is one of the best actresses I’ve met. 

Have you ever watched an actor so completely inhabit a role, such that it becomes them? (Of course– think of all the great films that came out this year!) In an instant, the line between their life and the life of the character is a complex and beautiful blur. We see great performances often on the big screen. But seeing those performances in person feels intimate, like you are now a part of this person’s story and history. Great acting makes you believe, makes you feel, and makes your world change, even if it’s just a little.
