Based on actual events, these photo/narratives explore the non-fiction inherent in creative writing through the fiction intrinsic to street photography. Each image, with its accompanying title and 3-line text, is a meditation on urban life as viewed through the paradox of representation. The circumstances, ideas, and candid captures in this satire, in striving to extricate themselves from the urban fabric, are treated as found objects re-presenting the narrative moment, the instant when textual and visual narratives are transformed through repetition, modification, and proximity.
