    A narrative photo I did a while ago based on the Greek story of Polyphemus. Here, Odysseus is a woman, and she is in Polyphemus cave. Instead of the giant falling asleep, it is the hero who falls asleep while the one-eyed monster watches. The image was composed of two parts, the woman, shot in the studio, and everything, shot in an old board skating ring with graffitti on the walls. It turns out that this old building is now gone.

    Not sure. It is not posted on my photo gallery, but perhaps you may have seen it elsewhere.
