Six Years Ago at Sheremetyevo

A photograph that made one long layover worth every misspent minute. An instant of photojournalistic realness at a time when I though I was leaving behind that genre for a more reductionist still-life approach. A document from a day in a life suspended between a Murakami-tinged near-month in Japan and a homecoming that demanded adjustments. A perfect metaphor—for any number of things.
