Drawing from a retrospective realm of nostalgic idealism, Corsano adds motion to dreamlike memory stills of his inner-city hometown. Accordingly, the municipal zone of Willowdale becomes a narrative where the daily lives of couples and individuals are choreographed as new visual documents.

Here, lifestyle/travel advertising aesthetics shed sales slogans to reveal timeless suburban tranquillity.
