“Through the narratives I create I question this act of storytelling and its effective outcomes on individual as well as cultural perspectives. Folktales, legends, religions, myths, fable, rumors: all have been used to explain the unexplainable, as well as create social structures through tales of morality. The authorship and authority that the storyteller retains allows for embellishment and plausibility, and the direction in which this authority is used is dependent on the author’s agenda.

PRISCILLA BRIGGS’S Artist Monograph Impossible Is Nothing: China’s Theater of Consumerism, published by Daylight Books
Impossible Is Nothing is a book of photographs that focus on constructed realities within contemporary China as they relate to ideas of luxury and status, with the West as a model of Capitalist values. At the same time, there are hints of what lies beneath the surface and the costs of global consumerism. Portraits, still life images, and urban landscapes, rich in detail, are woven together to create a lyrical ode to the optimism and imagination of contemporary China. Text contributors include Rob Schmitz (NPR foreign correspondent) and Susannah Magers (independent curator/writer).
