Tea With Me is a photo project that focuses on a way we can connect: over a cup of tea - it's so simple. I met with people to catch up, chat about life and take their portrait in the midst of it. Each subject was asked to submit a blurb about their life after a bit of self-reflection. In order to offer compassion to others, and therefore feel more responsibility towards the world as a whole, we must offer that compassion and attention to ourselves.
The entirety of this project, along with the complete blurbs, can be seen on my blog at www.celiamoase.tumblr.com. I will be showing Tea With Me during Toronto's Contact Photography Festival in May of 2014.
