Feelings and Similar Items is a compilation of pictures from the everyday. Initiated by Alex Thebez, the publication series is a way to create coherent narratives from the works of two photographers. Feelings is a photographic journal driven by the compulsive desire to photograph.
Taking an inspiration from a duet, Feelings focuses on photographs that fall under the personal documentary genre. Whether it is snapshots from a night out, or intimate moments with the family, Feelings aims to publish photographs from the personal lives of photographers working today
For the second volume of Feelings & Similar Items, Alex paired up with long time collaborator (and fellow GIFRIENDS member) Marisa Gertz. Feelings Vol. II collects photographs taken from 2011 until 2014, spanning various cities across the map.
