In Laura Stevens’s series “Another November”, she explores the aftermath of a long term relationship and the way one copes with the heartbreak. Stevens photographed friends and people she found on the street and posed them in the moments she herself was personally going through during a break up. Stevens focuses on the stage of denial between a break up and total acceptance of the separation by depicting the total emotional desolation that one feels when severed by a long-term significant other. Each image provides it’s own individual narrative of a woman’s emotional state during each stage of a break-up and the dismal perception that overcomes the victim.
