Like short stories in a collection, each photograph is a portrait of a Lake Elster resident, as recounted by unreliable narrator, Wade Lagarde. Specific figures from Lagarde’s memory inhabit these scenes and can be traced throughout the series. Significant objects in the photographs stand as attributes of characters who are often absent from the images. The inclusion of flat, stage-like painted elements heightens the fictional nature of the narrative and calls into question the veracity of the photographs.
