The Art of Exposure
“It seems almost magical, this art of night stealth that enables you to make yourself invisible in the black of night.”*
She lives in the shadows where she can thrive. She creates her own darkness and exists within it. She cultivates disguises, a ninja, a woman, a body; all deceptions in an act of self-preservation against her environment. And yet, it is in this act of hiding that she exposes herself… What will you see in her? What are you left with?
