Student Narrative

This is a book compiled of images that represent my passage in the very first month in Providence. I tried to recreate the scenes and sounds I see and hear on a daily basis and show the presence of myself and my peers in this new environment. The title of the book refers to the slow shutter speed of a camera, which allows the image to capture the passing of time. The book had a similar purpose of showing the traces of our lives in terms of the way it unfolds and the specific things chosen to be drawn.
