Men Carrying Flowers: Volume 1, is an ongoing work by artist Ophelia Mikkelson Jones. Captured on an iPhone camera, the photographs document an intimate gesture in a public space: a man carrying flowers, on the street. The work pursues the unplanned and fleeting occurrence over five years, considering kindness as a matter to be found and followed. Alongside the work is writing by author Durga Chew-Bose. Bose offers ten encounters of men carrying flowers, drawing from both personal and imagined realities.
