letters for lost lovers

 I just rediscovered these images I had saved on my computer a few years ago, 
They are of from an exhibition called Letter to Clair by photographer Patrick Swirc

For more than two months Patrick Swirc wrote a letter in the form of a diary by taking a photo everyday for Claire, the loved one who had left him. He made no secret of his hope that she would come back. This letter 
\was intended for her, and she received it.

My dearest Claire,
In this letter you will find all my grief, poured out each day into a picture.
I photograph myself. I am saving what no longer exists.
I want you for eternity.
