Often Overlooked. Vol. 2

by Cary Polkovitz

Ostranenie is the artistic technique of presenting to audiences common things in an unfamiliar or strange way, in order to enhance perception of the familiar.

Author Cary Polkovitz continues to fine tune his affinity for viewing everyday objects in magical and unusual ways and once again displays his remarkable talent for opening our imaginations to what could be in Often Overlooked. - Volume 2.

Readers of the author’s first collection have raved that these stories “tease the imagination” and have called it “think differently fiction.” Cary Polkovitz says of Often Overlooked, “I took photos of mundane items and tried to imbue them with a little bit of wonder. Looking at the world from a slightly skewed angle makes it a more magical place. As someone who loves to tell stories, I love to share them with others.”

This small project has resulted in the publication of Often Overlooked to die-hard fans wanting more of Polkovitz’s stories, as well as over 20,000 views per week on its companion Facebook page.
