This image is the lead off in my "Inner Darkness" portfolio. A dark series, although planned and started well before Covid-19, reflects some of the darkness of our times. The series is about the dark side of the mind's inner landscape in which the subject is haunted by ghosts from her past. That haunting leads to an ambiguous but unhappy conclusion. The message of the images is complemented by quotes from T. S. Eliot's poem "East Coker' and by selections from the "Dance of Death" medieval images from Lucerne, Switzerland. The series will be online at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute's webpage from February through September 2021, featuring one image at a time.
