Dor, in Romanian, is the feeling of longing or craving someone or some place in one's memory or an entire metamorphosis of body and soul for the one experiencing it. I've also heard that dor, in Hindi, means string, yarn or thread which neatly fits the idea of being pulled, bound, captured by this same feeling, the tug of love and memory, those connecting ties that bind.

This lovely book launched last night at the Photographer's Gallery. Editor Stephen McLaren spoke, along with some of the contributors. I kept quiet in the back but I'm so honoured to be part of such an important, essential publication about photographers' thought processes. I believe it sold out last night but, obviously, more will be available.
