A woman sets out to photograph moments of intimacy. On an Internet dating site she writes: ‘I’m looking for people who would like to be photographed in public revealing something of themselves…’ What I’m Looking For documents this adventure; the connections formed at this intersection between virtual and actual public space. The video is a rumination on the nature of photography and the persistence of vision. It is a short tale of desire and control.
