»Once you come close« is the new short film - and last project - born from the collaboration between photographer/videomaker Jonas Lindström and Costume National. Starring a boy and set in the surroundings of a big, hectic city, Lindström's film is a journey through the concept of one's perception of him/herself and the world. A voice-over accompanies the protagonist, speaking an intimate poetic monologue, unclear if it is revealing the boy's own emotions or just citing someone else's. Sound and surrounding and noise play along with the boy, interacting with his moves and thoughts on an abstract, somehow dreamlike level. This work comes as the final stage of Lindström's creative project, as a sum and evolution of the previous photographic contributes, where, through the lenses of his camera, he looked into the relationship between fashion, beauty and the idea of perfection.
