Broken cigarette lighters, playing cards, hair clips, buttons, and sugar packets.

With expressive hand-drawn typography, he gives life and voice to the things most of us just step over on the street. It’s more than a collection of photographs; it’s a complete story from first image to last.

Misani’s book chronicles an existential quest for meaning in a cold and crowded city landscape. His stories, whether a single line or a paragraph, reflect the loneliness, alienation, and humanity of the objects’ imagined owners. And in that way they reflect our own.
