Just happened to follow Murphy on IG and related to his story of lingering in a foreign country…mine Japan, his was Iceland. And with that, I appreciate the seemingly cold austerity of his black and white that if you look at the response to question 3 has a beautiful warmth. I love the transient nature of these responses, especially in 5 and 6 that are just beautiful…and the symbolism of birds in flight. Expatriate life. Check his IG below:
