Seth Kushner is a local photographer. In fact, he did the photos for a whole book about Brooklyn. Every now and then he does experiments in photocomix — comics whose images are modified photos, not drawings.

The page above is the second page of a heavily digitally-modified series of photos. The brief and very simple story, “Love_Underscores_You,” is a bit of an extrapolation: it imagines today’s technology in some far-out future, starring Chris Miskiewicz and Katelan Foisy. Dean Haspiel also worked on the script. It was meant to be the prologue of a larger project, called COMPLEX.
