58066 penumbra

This is a portfolio of photographs that I have made over the last few
years during journeys through Central and Eastern Europe and the
Caucasus. They are assembled here to accompany, by analogy, allegory or
suggestive equivalence, the previous audio filecast east by rail.


58060 east by rail ~

I stop for the night in a shabby hotel overlooking some train tracks,
near the end of my journey east. Floating in through the open window,
along with a night air still clinging to the smell of rain, are the
sounds of the trains, coming and going, a song of rolling metal and
churning gasses. The platform announcements call out, metallic and
chiming from the mouth of the speakerhorn, their precise meaning drowned
in swells of reverberation, which gather strength as they propagate
outward. They seem to say, “Your journey is not over, not yet.”

58033 blood of a poet

Stalks of barley and black wheat / nod ominously. I race towards them. /
The poet’s pen no longer sings / though it used to be his nightingale.
From „Desk: My Parnassus“ by Paolo Iashvili, 1932. Translated from
the Georgian by Rebecca Gould.
