What's more important, the pursuit of great art or the life of another human being? This is a question that photographer Harper Lowell answered with the former when he snapped an award-winning shot of a emaciated boy's last moments of life instead of coming to his aid. The photo immediately brought Harper fame, but when the ethics of his decision to choose art over humanity were called into question, he was soon labeled a pariah and ostracized by the same people who once praised his work.
"Exposures" joins Harper three years later, to find him now washed up, broke, and terrified to push the limits of his craft. Barely managing to keep the lights on, Harper's frustration and longing for days past is palpable. However, when an opportunity to take what could be his next great shot presents itself, Harper will again find himself faced with the question that brought him to ruin. Harper's sanity will be pushed to the limits as he struggles with the decision to choose a different path, or seize the chance to reclaim his former fame and glory. Ultimately, Harper reaches his goal, but will it be worth what he has to sacrifice?
