Installation Information

This photograph was taken by Jessica Bruah. Bruah’s body of work titled “Stories” began when she decided to merge her love for fiction with her interest in photography. She began to see each image as its own visual narrative. Because the scenarios depicted are vague and bizarre, the viewers have to interpret each story for themselves. Each photograph contains an anonymous character, seemingly unaware of the lens, whose face is never shown. Every image is carefully assembled, aided by costumes, props, studio lighting, and posing. All these elements, along with the manipulation of a view camera, bring a surrealistic and often amusing quality to the images.
