Curated by Kris Harzinski

These remnants of daily life, both intimate and mundane, surround Dead Rides, an original story by Casey Hannan.

Daily Life Storage is a series of limited edition portfolios and other projects generating an ongoing and admittedly peculiar archive centered around queer creativity. As the collection expands it rests somewhere between art, scrotums, piss and kinkos. To launch each new release, portfolios are available for free to anyone willing to fulfill a given task. After this initial offering, the remaining portfolios are sold at bookstores, book fairs and via this website to help fund future projects.
