but I don’t need to use any stupid manga apps because I already have freakishly neotenous photographic tendencies and an unnatural relationship with light. (at Keflavik International Airport)

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond

any experience,your eyes have their silence:

in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,

or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me

though i have closed myself as fingers,

you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens

(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and

my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,

as when the heart of this flower imagines

the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals

the power of your intense fragility:
whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,

rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;
only something in me understands

the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)

nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
E. E. Cummings
(1894 – 1962)

I’m on the front and bum of Keith Brighouse’s latest book of erotic, philosophical poems about the artist and his muses.

…a bit rough around the edges, but convincingly composed – a spontaneous no-make-up portrait on a dusty slab of June light, from a shoot that wasn’t going to involve my head, hence the bare face and roughly scraped-back hair.
