"Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends." -Virginia Woolf, "The Waves," 1931
These images each tell a story, though not the whole story. They are a single frame, cut from an imaginary tale. By emphasizing defining qualities in my friends they’ve become characters in these stories. The images in this series are a collage of sorts – the components are found in discarded books and magazines, then reassembled to create a completely new image. These new scenes are photographed using traditional black and white photography techniques.
