"Touched by the flame, images retrieved from strangers’ archives change their structure. The nature and urban scenes they originally depicted mutate into abstract glimmers of parallel worlds. Creative rather than destructive, the flame expands the borders of perception and interpretation of these images, opening up paradoxical depth in their surface seemingly out of nothing."

The experiences are essentialized then captured in black and white images full of emotions and subtle symbols revealing themselves to the viewer at every step into this journey. Beyond the narrative line the 32 photos in the book create a story about inadequacy and revolt, about the struggle to preserve one’s individuality, about the difficulties and joy of teenage life and about a dark future yet with much hope and beauty."

"Here is a research monograph that searched out some beauty in our imperfect material world - a search for Form in simple expression. The book design and layout inspiration came from old handbooks and field guides that were prevalent during the early to mid 1900's. A particularly dry one called the Art of Delivery (for lawn bowlers) was used for the design of this book."
