“The heroines in Amanda Zackem’s photographs are, by turns, storm-tossed on a sea of blankets, muscular in mid-motion, and supple as cats”

Harry Price: Magician and Conjurer
Aquatic Nocturne by Sylvia Plath
deep in liquid turquoise slivers of dilute light
quiver in thin streaks of bright tinfoil on mobile jet:
pale flounder waver by tilting silver:
in the shallows agile minnows flicker gilt:
grapeblue mussels dilate lithe and pliant valves:
dull lunar globes of blubous jellyfish glow milkgreen:
eels twirl in wily spirals on elusive tails:
adroir lobsters amble darkly olive on shrewd claws:
down where sound comes blunt and wan like the bronze tone of a sunken gong.
In the same way that violinists can be counted on to have remarkable hands, photographers have great eyes. Brassai’s were bouncing balls under aerodynamic eyebrows and his Paris was a city on the cusp “between the era of the Belle Epoque and that of the Modern Age.” The gas lamps of Europe were giving way to electric streetlights. That meant a new kind of nighttime, full of sexy pinpoints in the fog, 20th century floodlights over 19th century cobblestones, popguns of brightness in dark places that told dirty jokes about the naked city. Brassai claimed as his territory the nocturnal city that camera and film technology was just then arriving at the means to capture.
