Zine Review: The Transcribed Photographs

The Transcribed Photographs
From Venus

There was a time when music didn’t need videos. Silence didn’t need to be broken. Screens didn’t need to be glowing in our living rooms, or reflected in our eyes 24/7. There was a time when you could go out to dinner or wait in a lobby without the electronic intrusion of a television. There was a time when you could spend hours standing in front of one painting, or photograph, uninterrupted & immersed in its messages.

The Transcribed Photographs is an exhibit of poetic description, expressing the photographs that the artist desired to capture on film, or to compose. The opening page quotes Anais Nin “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.” Descriptive poetry is encased in frames throughout this inventive zine that whispers to your imagination to create the visuals. The Transcribed Photographs is an invitation to take a guided journey through your own inner landscape.
