All you need is some good sun and a tiny hole the size of a pin in order to draw an exact image of the world on the opposite wall, inverted but intact: a singular landscape well-lit, the colors, the shadows, the clouds, the ripples on the water, the flight of birds, all seen under a nicely brilliant sun.
The images are by Suzanne Doppelt. The translation from French is by Cole Swensen.
While I’m writing, I’m far away;
and when I come back, I’ve gone.
André Kertész, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Desk at Bernard Lamotte’s Home, c. 1960
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
I don’t eavesdrop, I listen in. Like a doctor to someone’s chest. And, often, you tap, and there is no echo!
Marina Tsvetaeva, translated from the Russian by IIya Kaminsky and Jean Valetine, Poetry vol. CXCIX no. 6, March 2012

from her website:
Kristamas Klousch is a strange little wolfgirl, residing deep in the forests & cities of Canada.
She dislikes the term photographer and instead prefers to be called a ‘Caricature Artist’ with a camera. Her Self-Portaiture is dark, misleading, moody, erotic, whimsical and most often personal.
She is greatly inspired by the works of Francesca Woodman, Kate Bush, A. Sexton, Sarah Moon, Leonard Cohen, Lewis Carroll and Cindy Sherman just to name a few.
