Sun Comes too Soon "We Ran As If To Meet The Moon"

Amber Witcomb & Luka Issac dream deep in “We Ran As If To Meet The Moon” by Daniel Sannwald for Garage Magazine, SS 2017. Art exists on another plain, as bold imagery invites us to explore the stratosphere. Baron yet beautiful desolate yet divine crossover and enjoy a subset of reality. Looking into her wanting eyes, we see the fullness of sky as if it were the beginning of time. This changes our concept of abstract nothingness into a vastness of riches.
