Rachel Filler is a photographer from Los Angeles, currently living in Brooklyn, NY. Her zine “Do I Make You Happy More Than I Make You Sad?” is a series of personal photographs in which she confronts the tender spot one finds themselves in when they get truly close to someone; when the good and the bad surface equally. When you begin to look deeply inward and ask yourself, ‘is this really working?’ and you feel the temptation to ask that other person if it is worth it for them as well. Filler’s photographs work through the complexities of those interpersonal relationships, ultimately deciding to have faith in and cherish them, good or bad. Item #18742
