    Dan Rubin I found myself returning to this series again and again — the careful positioning of the characters, composition of each image, and timing of background elements demands a longer, closer look at each frame, and the story being told in each is clear.

One of my fondest childhood memories is when my father would bring me a new book from “The Adventures of Tintin” series. I would read the new book voraciously. My mind would wander off to the far lands Tintin and his dog Snowy (Milou) would visit. Now, when I visit nearby New York or travel, I may bring small plastic figurines. I carefully position them in real-world settings and often patiently await for the right pedestrians to populate the frame. By reimagining these childhood memories through photography, I hope to evoke a sense of nostalgia and spark the viewers' imagination.
