The phrase Harder than writing a good haiku was an analogy I spoke of while helping another artist edit their work to a manageable number of images while leaving enough to still convey the original concept. These photographs, originally created as 8×10” and 8×8” tintypes, were conceived as select moments from stories where the hint of a narrative open to the viewers’ interpretation is more important than the specifics of the characters’ identities or where they are located. The scenes depicted are designed to engage whether they are totally familiar or curiously exotic, depending on each viewer’s background.
