The Vanishing of Michelle duBois

In what was originally a smaller edition project for Aperture, Zoe Crosher has slowed down and mapped out the stages of material disappearance, creating a unique image in each stage of this fourteen step process where the image of the Naughty Nurse progressively transforms into a sea of mute whiteness; the information degrades and fades out, leaving only the traces of a fantasy history.
