When taken literally, a translation of the word ‘photograph’ means ‘written light’. In this book Mikesch Muecke offers the reader/viewer a collection of ‘textual illumination’ divided into categories. The accompanying short short-stories—in some cases no more than a few words—are literary counter weights to the visual text.
A facsimile of Mikesch Muecke’s undergraduate portfolio is now available as a compact volume of 72 black & white pages.
