Riley grew up in rural eastern Washington. As a child he read Mark Twain’s stories of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and decided he wanted to be like those mythical boys. He wanted a life full of treasure and adventure. In the series Scavenger: Adventures in Treasure Hunting, photographer Jenny Riffle follows Riley out on his hunts and photographs the objects he collects. Riffle explores the line between documentary and fantasy. She portrays Riley as an adventurous character driven by the thrill of the hunt and the possibility of what he will discover.

This project is an attempt to connect my past place of residence with my present self. When time is a barrier, I find identification with the past becomes more difficult. In my work I tried to manifest different possibilities of interaction between the surrounding space and the images arising in my imagination. This from the fear of allowing the disappearance of the space that memory is. This from the desire to show my dreamscape on a background of urban space, creating a visual model at the intersection of past and present.
Title: NOISE Photographer: Kumi Oguro Publisher: Le Caillou Bleu Date of publication: September 2008 Place of publication: Brussels, Belgium Pages: 64 Dimensions: 24 x 17.5 cm ISBN: 9782930537009 Someone once said about one of my works, “This photograph has noise” - the white noise of interference, disturbing the beautiful music on the radio.
You don’t know what it really is, but it's there in the background, making you feel anxious, uneasy, getting on your nerves.
Such noise keeps buzzing in my head like tinnitus. Its shape may change, little by little, but it will always be there in the images I create.
My first book NOISE consists of the photographs created in the period between 2002 and 2008 and a text by Emmanuel d'Autreppe (Fr/Eng/Jp).
