Why: It's be fair to say many of us have dabbled in the world of online dating. Sites such as OkCupid and Tinder have changed the way we meet people and have certainly created some strange and wonderful stories to tell. Melbourne based photographer and writer Greta Parry is one such person who has explored this realm, but at the same time documented her experiences.

With an accompanied zine containing stories behind each photo, 'I Spend a Lot of Thinking About' documents 20 of Greta's first dates. The photos and stories range from excitement, discomfort, awkwardness to adventure, there's bound to be an experience you can relate to, or at the very least look into the world of modern day dating.
