Jenna Lanae "Don't Call Me Kiddo"
These photos are from my series "Don't Call Me Kiddo" or "Kiddo" for short. This idea came to my head after breaking up with my ex and afterwards they kept fighting with me over text and every now and again they would call me kiddo which made me absolutely furious. It was such an endearing and belittling word that they didn't deserve to say to me. This series of photos is to describe the culture of holding on to something that isn't even giving you the attention you deserve. You start to feel cold in a warm relationship. It's an odd sensation to come to terms with the fact that you are the only one in love in the relationship and dealing with the aftermath of that. It's also a bit about hookup culture as I met my ex through the popular dating app Tinder. After using the app for a long time hookups started to make me disassociate and feel very disconnected from real life. I just want to be warm in a cold world.
