All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.

Reviewed on Newpages "...Camera Obscura is a fire burning at the center of our field of vision; a note to the world; and a marvelous embodiment of the play of light and darkness in the best, most generous sense of these words and the artistry they represent.
From Ruelle Electrique "It's like reading at an art gallery (something I've never done, but which I feel like I have after reading this journal)."
