Schindler is a stalker of sorts, documenting local places without any other telos beyond the documentation itself. His images are unframed by extra commentary or descriptions, allowing the reader to simply drift through the city in a kind of derive. Through his images of signs, storefronts, abandoned couches, and handmade lost pet flyers, Schindler captures the (extra)ordinary details of life in the city. He does not attempt to give readers the “true” version of Austin, but is instead documenting his own encounters with/in the city.
