Missed Connections : Series 1
Series 1 : Belinda.  Featuring Liz Rywelski as "Belinda."  Photography and Concept by Porsche Jones.
This is the second series of photos that undertakes an interpretation of selected entries from Craigslist "Missed Connections."  These entries were all selected from the Buffalo, NY Craigslist within a three week timeperiod.
 
A major facet of the Missed Connections project is the possibility that all the entries could have been written to the same person.  These are ambiguous, praised-filled tales from annonymous writers, directed at mysterious characters who may be partially real and partially constructed of fantasy.  They are stories of encounters; brief, ecstatic encounters that the writer is desperate to repeat.  They are a form of gospel, a testimonial, ritually recreated in order to access the Aphrodite-archetype.
 
The photographs are obscured or sidelong.  They are from the perspective of the would-be connector: not wanting to get caught.  Missing the connection.  We have only hints about this person or character being described; she works at Geico, shops at Wegmans.  Yet we learn many things about the descriptors as they project themselves and their fantasies onto their accounts.
