KIRKUS REVIEW

The brilliance of Anne Brigman's photographs has put her in front ranks of her profession. Now, in a volume combining 38 photographs with an equal number of poems, she appears in a new form of artistic expression. As in her choice of subjects- patterns of trees against the skies, turbulence, peace, physical drama, muted impressions, nude figures -- there's kinship of verse and photographs, though they are linked by mood rather than actually paired. There is a classic quality, brought into modern stream by the beat and rhythms, the variety in verse forms, while in content, in seeking for faith, in beauty of imagery, the modern and the traditional are blended.
