Capturing the ambiance of a delicate daydream, the new short video by Mark Borthwick for the Berlin-based frame makers Mykita is a sublime example of the photographer's mastery of capturing emotion and intimacy. Following two women as they explore the serene landscape of Tulum, Mexico, Mark Borthwick's film articulates the connection we forever embrace towards our most precious memories.

Mark Borthwick also included his own musical accompaniment for the Mykita short, which added to the overall atmosphere of a temporary and welcomed distraction from the present moment. Watching this short, one almost feels as if it were they who accompanied the two travelers on this journey, making this as much of a nostalgic reverie as a new experience.

When asked about the style of the film Mark Borthwick said, "There was no specific concept, rather a connection between sensuality and curiosity, and a feeling of being blinded by the light. It’s the gift of losing time, liberating the senses and letting go."
