There is an odd dichotomy going on here. Try and find examples of photographed comic strips and, excepting the odd flourish of ideas here and there, you are limited to dreary and repetitive love-angst in teenage magazines. Yet is there a creative endeavour more pervasive than photographic narrative? Think about it. Is there anyone in the Western world (and a goodly part of the Eastern world) who does not make photographs and then use them to tell stories: holidays, celebrations or private moments collected into sequence—time cut up with a narrated voice track added? This is the most ancient form of creative communication (storytelling) in its most current form, so why is it not represented across the board at all cultural levels?
