Based on interviews with homeless youth, Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories weaves together myths from Ovid’s Metamorphoses to raise the voices of street kids to the level and importance of the gods. A story of transformation, this poetic and profane journey follows kids through the dangerous and sometimes fantastical world of the streets as they tell stories to survive.
What are the stories that only live in the dark?
