Camera obscura

The literal meaning of “camera obscura” is “dark room.” It is a method used in early photography, whereby an image on one side of a screen is projected through a small hole, or a lens, onto the other side. The image appears as an exact, though inverted, replica of the original. The surroundings need to be dark for the image to appear clearly.

These poems are self portraits of sorts. I’m playing with the idea of inversion and darkness — what looking inside the dark room of a person’s mind may look like. Rather than capturing an external image, they illuminate an interior moment.
