Fragments is a selection of photographs by Lawrence Ripsher. Lawrence says this about the work:
I've always been interested in narrative/storytelling photography - images that go beyond pure aesthetics. "Fragments" was a project I undertook to further explore this theme. The intent was to create a series of images which would invoke emotions in the viewer, encouraging them to ask questions of what are, in some cases, fairly dramatic scenes.
Viewers who come across the shots have interesting and varied reactions. Some see the images as scenes conveying depression. Others see hope and resolve. For me, this ambiguity was one of the goals of the project - my attempt at providing questions but not necessarily the entire answer.
