In front the mirror
the loneliness of the voyeur on the journey to the light





" Mirror, on the wall..."
being mirrored in he light of the truth
throught the eye, the glasses, the lens, the mirror and
.............................................................................................. back
the breath of the photographer is the respiration of the model
the dreams in the mirror are the magic of the mirror
miroir magique  -    a miracle is promised
the glaring shine of the moon is the disillusion : if there is 
much light, there is much shadow, too; what's on the left, is
getting on the right
the cabalistic light of the apocalypse
the photophobia idea as a light appearance : spiritual illumination,
disegno divino interno
surrealistic meeting with yourself : I &I (humanscape) -  we are
gleaming like the mirror
the mirror image blinds
the reflections of the rays of light are lustrous - hasmalim
I see my unmasked heart
I see my denuded heart ... eye flutter
merciless warmth
photographein : not image, but vision
I am stepping through the mirror - I don't leave broken bits behind :
the meditation of the fragility, the secret of the transparency
the stolen mirror
vanitas, vanitas, eternitas
let there be light ! Ner tamid
to live in front of a mirror, Baudelaire demands
