BONFIRES is a kinship between fellow grievers- the bittersweet happiness that results from burning the things you love and setting them free in the wind.
p.t. fischer (los angeles, us), johan sommarfint (helsingborg, sweden), artur knutson (helsingborg, sweden), and jean ancelet (paris, fr), met while backpacking across europe. all were escaping a crisis: p.t., a vicious breakup; johan and artur, the death of a childhood friend; and jean, the divorce of his parents. this was a record that was never supposed to be. written on trains and fields over an entire meandering spring, and finally recorded in the basement of johan and artur's house, the result is "future lives", a record of hope and melancholy, both for things happened and things yet to.
"we all live in awareness that one day, we'll look back to where we are now and it will be one or the other, nostalgia or regret. and these polaroids of where who how we will be will wilt and wane. in these ever changing, these future lives" p.t. fischer
