In this issue’s Spotlight section, we bring you the story behind one of the selected collections in our Community Curation Season 03: The Endings, by Caitlin Cronenberg.
Slow Burn, by Caitlin Cronenberg
Slow Burn, by Caitlin Cronenberg
This collection is made up of images from the highly anticipated photobook The Endings which was published in 2018 by Chronicle Books and became a best-seller within the first week. 
The Endings is a collection of short stories told through still photography, each depicting the moments surrounding the end of a romantic relationship. The photos are not posed, they are acted: a cross between a fashion photograph and a film still.
Featuring some of today’s most beloved actors, these piercing photographic vignettes capture female characters in the throes of powerful emotional transformations. Photographer Caitlin Cronenberg and art director Jessica Ennis collected stories of heartbreak, relationship endings, and new beginnings—fictional but often inspired by real life—and set out to convey the raw emotions that are exposed in those vulnerable states. Collaborating with celebrated talents such as Julianne Moore, Keira Knightley, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cronenberg and Ennis developed each character, built her world, and then photographed as she lived the role before the camera. The resulting collection is a bold look at the experience of losing or leaving love and will speak to anyone who appreciates art, photography, and the strength of facing emotional depths head-on.
RAW DAO has added Slow Burn to our ever growing collection.
