we are 15
First love makes an impact on the rest of our lives. We don't forget it. Sometimes it lasted longer, sometimes shorter or now and then the first love lasts still today. We associate strong memories with it. It is a unique fulfilment of a strong desire we never felt before and it is not burdened with negative experiences. To examine this feeling, I accompanied Ronia and Lars during their first love and everything which goes along with it. Situations and emotions which I got to know before them. They experience the effort, the happiness, learn about distance and closeness and face different kind of the decisions. A first love which is exciting, lighthearted and strong like every other, but yet so different and unique. The work has been a chance to get some insight into a first love, even if it was not my own. It recalls this feeling of the first love, gives in insight into the intimacy and naivety, and leaves us with the remembrance of our own.
