About Polaroid Stories:
Based on real life stories of street kids, and drawing from Ovid’s Metamorphoses myths, Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories blends poetry and profanity to explore how young people pushed to the edge of society come to understand their lives amid anger, love both lost and found, violence, homelessness, ambition, and addiction.
