No One Belongs Here...

The site for No one belongs here more than you. Stories by Miranda July, is so bare bones minimal that I just can’t not like it. It’s actually more like an anti-site than a traditional personal site.

Each page consists of a single full-frame image and forward and back arrows, that’s it. The images are scaled to fit the window, so depending on your browser window size, the image is going to distort and stretch to your current configuration. The images are usually blurry, the camera flash will on occasion blowout image areas and the photo cropping seems somewhat random. While all that might seem negative, it actually adds to the site’s charm. The overall narrative is clever, funny and interesting, and it does a nice job of keeping the viewer motivated to see what the next image will reveal. It’s certainly not your typical good site, but I’m convinced it’s good nonetheless.
