Freeing your Strangers
We have trapped strangers in the backgrounds of our photographs. Perhaps we are the elderly couple taking a selfie in a derelict bandstand who catch by accident a large and red-faced woman jogging through the park behind. Or maybe we are the new father taking photos of his wife and baby son by the canal who inadvertently frames in the image’s upper right-hand corner a man who holds a naked doll by its plastic hand.
Search through your photographs and write the story of a trapped stranger. Set that stranger free.
Bunny Goodjohn’s latest novel, THE BEGINNING THINGS, was released by Underground Voices in November 2015. Her poetry collection, BONE SONG, continues to do well. http://www.bagoodjohn.com/p/on-writing.html
