Shutter Volume One by Eli Chastain #Shutter #EliChastain #99Pennies #MustRead
I get paid to photograph intimate moments in other peoples’ lives–specifically one man. During the day, I watch while he’s working, and every night I watch him while he’s f***ing. It started as a job but quickly turned into an obsession.
His name is Nikolas Gallo.
I spent years in front of the camera before I escaped. Now I’m behind it and in control of what my shutter captures. The moment I viewed Niko in the lens of my camera I found the escape I’d been searching for. I finally felt connected – whole.
There are two types of celebrity photographers; those that wait for their victim to venture into public to get their pay day; always allowing some small semblance of privacy. Then there are those lurking in the shadows, steadily invading private lives, hunting and searching for the most intimate of shots; that’s what I have become.
My name is Brook Beckham and I found my inner peeping Tom.
this is part one of a novella series. part two releases in september.
