Camera Obscura

Rebecca Bednarz

Alternating poems that perform syntactically expansive riffs on photographs and other art with poems of personal loss, particularly of a mother, Rebecca Bednarz enters ‘the room, the dark one’ that gives Camera Obscura its title and explores the associative depths of feeling that come to the surface when one dares to stand unflinchingly ‘before the negative’s total eclipse’ and share what is found there

Martha Collins

Rebecca Bednarz currently lives and writes in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her poems can be found in recent issues of The Threepenny ReviewPrairie SchoonerSou’wester and DoubleTake/Points of Entry.
