Entry Description

This is an image from an on-going series that utilizes the photographic tradition of highly-staged tableaux to tell dramatic visual narratives. The selected scenes explore themes of human drama through a collection of emotive moments gleaned from everyday life and amplified into archetypal surreal scenes. Marked by a commonplace mystique, whether from the street in passing or from the cafe in idleness, these moments were stolen from strangers and here magnified into glorified interactions, to reveal the stories untold of those fleeting moments unnoticed.
