Kim Adrian is a writer and avid amateur photographer. Her most recent book is Dear Knausgaard. Other books include the memoir The Twenty-Seventh Letter of the Alphabet and The Shell Game: Writers Play with Borrowed Forms (ed.).

The photographs of “found faces” in Brevity Issue 66 are examples of “pareidolia,” which is the tendency to interpret vague or ambiguous stimuli as something familiar. These photos are research for a forthcoming series of essays about imagination.
