Series of 22 drawings and texts from New York City.

The drawings in this series were all made on the NYC subway : people reading, waiting, sleeping, texting ...
The texts are diary excerpts and give a slice of life on the streets of the city: snippets of conversation, political demonstrations, notions in transit, culminating in a party at a friend's house in Jersey City.

Film in a Box #5
The Film in a Box consists of an edited series of digital photos, presented in a small box, like a pack of cards.
The images can be shuffled, recomposed and excerpted at will - or combined with other images - allowing the owner to edit their own version of the "film" enclosed.

22pp. | 115 x 170 mm
