PROGRESS

PROGRESS is a new series that is a collaboration between photographer Christopher Turner, and playwright Alan Olejniczak. Each piece includes a subject dressed in modern corporate attire in dark and sometimes post-apocalyptic settings—evoking themes from classical mythology and literature. They are meant to question our impact on the environment, as well as the emotional implications of modern consumerism. Their intention is to convey stories, reveal truths, and provoke discussion. This series was born post-election as a response to the current political and social climate.
