A collection of travel photos that take the form of still lifes. To Ma, “special nothings” are those everyday objects that, on the right day, or in the right moment, are sources of pure delight: a very hairy flower; a block of head cheese the size and shape of an iPhone; a gherkin that looks especially perverse.
