To explore how images conjure up stories, Shanks constructs and then photographs rooms showing the aftermath of a disaster. Looking through the doorways in the photographs, the viewer becomes an eavesdropper and silent observer on feelings evoked by a room filled with crumpled paper or a bricked-up passageway. The color 20-by-30-inch photographs are displayed in white shadow box frames. Shank teaches photography in the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
