KATIE PHONE HOME by Stephanie Buckley

£4.00

Four snapshots of Katie’s twelfth birthday party on September 30, 1989 have been preserved in a photo album. The three images, Katie’s candle lit face, Katie blowing out the candles and Katie opening a present, have spent more than 30 years together obeying the limitations of their existence. However, today they may blow out the candles, eat the cake and open the present in an attempt to make contact with the forth, silent image.
