comfort book for nervous children
Published by Nope Fun
comfort book for nervous children is a collaboration between Lee Chang Ming and Dennese Victoria. The photos were taken by Lee over the past decade — fragments of memories with friends, traces of feelings and small moments he wanted to hold on to. The photos were passed to Victoria without much context, who provided a textual response that weaves together fiction, poetry, and an open-ended narrative.
This publication was created as the third part of Conversations, a project by Lee Chang Ming for Objectifs’ programme Site Unseen. Conversations explores the relationship between photography, text, and subjectivity. By inviting collaborators to start “conversations” with his photographs, Lee hopes to explore the malleability of the meanings that photographs can have, and what new meanings can emerge when we remove text or add unexpected kinds of words.
