The Adventure of a Photographer

Photographic series and installation 2006


This photographic series / installation was a primitive interactive work in that postcard size images were given to 24 individuals to situate the work in a time and place creating a collective mythical diary. The title takes its name from Italo Calvino's short story with the eponomous title while feminizing the narrative in the age of digital technology. 

The work was presented at Miss China during the Mois de la Photo in Paris (2006).
