One of my favourite columns in the New York Times, apart from all of the important news bits of course, is Modern Love. While I’ve only been able to read the ones they publish online, it’s still a fascinating glimmer into the absolute highs and desperate lows of love. The stories and the honesty within them are what make them so compelling and because love is so universal you can somehow connect with each author.
Up until recently, I had no idea they also animated these columns but I’m so happy I’ve now discovered them because they’re all so excellently executed. The most recent Beyond Years is really lovely and details the relationship of Tim and Sarah McEown who only started to acknowledge their 22-year age difference as an obstacle after Tim had a heart attack.
This animation comes from Brooklyn-based creative Freddy Arenas and it’s beautifully done with Freddy’s simple style being all that’s needed to bring their story to life. The subtle nuances make the images blend perfectly together with the words being spoken and make you feel even more warmth towards Tim and Sarah.
