Michael Rainey's portfolio Letting the World Happen
"I have been making photographs which include what I call extended captioning for about 12 years. The photographs do not illustrate the narrative, nor does the narrative explain the images...rather each piece is a space where photographs and words delicately coexist, where plastic form, memory and chance, what I know and what I don't know...all come together."—Michael Rainey
