I decided that the proper setting for the montages was an account of my life, and so I set about to write a memoir. But when I was done I had created something that seemed to defy description. No matter how hard I tried I was unable to come up with a name for my illustrated manuscript. So I have turned to a practice that is extremely popular among my fellow photographers and editors: at a loss for an original idea myself, I decided to steal that too. This time from Lewis Carroll, a far far greater writer, and knave, than I ever hope to be.
