Landscapes within landscapes





Artist Laura Plageman, who works in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she grew up, manipulates her photographs physically rather than digitally. In her ongoing series Response, she alters sea and landscapes and forest scenes to create something she describes as being “both a truth and a fiction”. Starting with the printed photographs, she creates a 3D collage, lights it, and photographs the still life.

Last Muse by Elaine Feinstein

A bossy ghost I work for: she
who only lives in words on the page
and has no thoughts I do not give her.

She has no flesh, and will not age.
Why should I care
if she survives when I am gone?

And yet I do, though well advised
most of us fall into the bag
of the forgotten or despised –

knowing if traces do remain
they will not make us
live again – still carry on.
