Magic: Spiral. Lynchburg, TN. 1989
Platinum-palladium print on Fabriano 5 from 8×10 negative


That the Poetic Genius is
the true Man. and that
the body or outward form
of Man is derived from the
Poetic Genius. Likewise
that the forms of all things
are derived from their
Genius. which by the
Ancients was call’d an
Angel & Spirit & Demon


As all men are alike in
outward form, So (and
with the same infinite
variety) all are alike in
the Poetic Genius

From ‘All Religions are One’ by William Blake, 1788
