A photographer named "Flash" finds himself in a remote desert after a plane crash. All he has is an instant camera when children rescue him and take him to their home. The villagers are instantly entranced. They call him a magician and think the photographs are paintings. Narrator Richard Morant beautifully and deliberately tells this imaginative story. As the number of pictures Flash can take dwindles, he must decide who and what to photograph. Listeners learn about different concepts of beauty as the story asks the question: does one want to be remembered as young and vibrant or old and accomplished? The surprise ending is perfect for this unique tale. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
