This body of work started with a question; "What would a young boy take if he was running away from home?"

The full title of the piece is:
After his death, the only thing found in the study of the world-famous archaeologist, Dr. A. Cowan, was this black case. It was nestled on the middle shelf of a large, empty bookcase behind his desk. Inside were these 11 photographs. The only information we know about them is what is written on the labels. 

(Yes, I know I should have each letter properly capitalized, but that would just look weird.)
