OPEN: Horace and Agnes: a Love Story

October 14, 2014

A collaborative photographic journal that depicts the life story of characters Horace and his wife Agnes. Photography by Asia Kepka. Stories by Lynn Dowling.

Artist’s Statement:

“On a hot July day, we dressed ourselves up with masks borrowed from a friend and started shooting self-portraits. We were fascinated by these characters and immediately named them Horace and Agnes. Once we gave them an identity, their story began to unfold. They met through random circumstance and their love for each other is literally blind. They exemplify a fairy tale of what it would be like to fall in love with the right person…just because.

Horace and Agnes (and their friends) are made up of all of the people we have encountered through our lives. Their world, though slightly dated, is a tangible one that our characters pass through.

Horace and Agnes are all self portraits. Photographer Asia Kepka stars as Agnes and Lynn Dowling, who writes their stories, plays Horace.” – Asia Kepka
