Every story tells a picture (2)

I ran across this gem by the great Mitch Epstein on a preview page of prints to be sold at Aperture Foundation's auction. What a revelatory image of post-colonial Africa! Its startling, absurdist juxtapositions, its irreconciliable clashes between nature & development, past & the future -- all here.

Then I noticed the title: "Lichtenberg, Berlin, 2008." Umm...time to start a new story.

See the first 'Every story'... post.
