once, you were an island


a new book, 70 pages, 8 x 10" edition of 25



once, you were an island, is a new series which originated as a story, told to me by a friend about an urban legend surrounding the demise of a foreigner traveling to the United States. The legend goes that a woman, depressed with her personal situation, comes to the Midwest to reunite with her married lover. This experience becomes an albatross and ultimately leads to her death. As the story develops it is completely embellished and misconstrued by the local media and the question of what is a factual account of the event and what are constructed aspects of the narrative begin to surface.
