"Through a Window" by Thea Neufeldt Armstrong

December 7, 2018

When I was in Paris, I sometimes felt like I was an outsider looking in. I speak the language very little, and found I encountered barriers quite often. As the days went on though, I became more comfortable as a guest within these barriers, a temporary migrant like many of the people around me, belonging in the very nature of being a visitor. My fresh eyes took in the city so much more this way, when I began to embrace the beauty of being an onlooker. At the end of it, I'm a tourist - I embraced seeing the city through camera lens, through window. I'm happy and grateful to look through!

Here are some photos of Parisians and visitors alike, through barriers and windows, one with their surroundings.

December is such an exciting time of year and is very dear to our hearts. This time of year is all about spending time with the people you love, whether that’s family or friends. We’d love to see any and all submissions revolving around how you like to spend your holidays because that is what makes each of us unique!

As always we’d also like to take a moment to express our gratitude for you all. While it’s nice to receive things from loved ones it’s also important to consider the things you already have that you are thankful for. When we think about what we’re thankful for, Dissolving Film and the people that support us (you!!!) are at the top of the list.

We would also like to give a humongous thank you to Rookie and everyone who worked on it over the years. Thank you for making such an incredible platform and safe community for teenagers (especially teenage girls) everywhere. Thank you for helping to make us feel like we belong and that we are not alone in the world.

We hope to hear/see from you this month! 💌✨
Love, Zoë Bridgwater + Zoey Martinez (zb + zm)
