Yasmine Rafii carries her camera most places and shoots all of the time. Some images become raw material for compositing, some are simple documents, most are deleted and a very few move forward into final processing. Each of Yasmine's deceptively simple, contemplative compositions are the result of many hours of shooting and searching out the right location at the right time. Yasmine says of this piece, "A dead-end alley with garbage cans is transformed by light and rain into a place of mystery and strange beauty. A painted stage set waiting for performers."
