Mindfulness in texture

by Isaiah Little

This collection of images revolves around the idea of mindfulness with regards to one’s sense of touch, portraying different types of physical texture. Because of the pandemic, many of us find ourselves deprived of different types of stimuli, one of which being physical touch with others and the outside world around us. Instead of looking outside and at the world we’re missing out on, we can look to what’s around us in the present moment — and appreciate the intricacies and details that would normally be passed off as insignificant.
