Relive the live reading that took place at Fotografiska New York on February 2, 2020.

Photographer Michael Magers shares images from his first monograph, Independent Mysteries, while writer Mitch Moxley reads an expanded version of his contribution to the project set to the ambient noise of a Japanese train station.
