Jackie Ranken exhibited an intriguing and whimsical body of work at the BIFB13 entitled Kitchen Stories and other realities.

Rankin selects an environment, throws kitchen utensils in the air, photogpraphs them, then writes a little story about the event. The environment is a backdrop or stage for the flying kitchen objects These anecdotes in the author’s own hand surround the image to recount Ranken’s connection with the object and the circumstances of the photo-making encounter.
