Underground Forum: Shared Unshared

Shared Unshared Text: Jessica Crowe Photo: Sop Rodchenvko Waiting games, guessing games, classic photographic games, observer observed observing, one picture and its lines and trains and lines of thought. A perfect invitation into a second of captured narrative. Silent communal rituals of public life, eyes not quite meeting eye, subject places us as subject.
