The View Behind the Cafe

PRESENTED ON AUG 17, 2017
IN DAYTON @ VOL 32

"Every week there are new items, objects, things, stuff that people abandon that people put out, leave out, the flotsam and jetsam of the modern age. It's just back there, new stuff all the time.

In The View Behind the Cafe from PechaKucha Night Dayton Vol. 32, James Luckett observes the parking lot behind his workplace.  His photos transform the invisible into new compositions, from abandoned dolls to shadows on concrete.
