"A Woman Speaks"
Audre Lorde / 1968


Moon marked and touched by sun   
my magic is unwritten 
but when the sea turns back 
it will leave my shape behind.   
I seek no favor 
untouched by blood 
unrelenting as the curse of love   
permanent as my errors 
or my pride 
I do not mix 
love with pity 
nor hate with scorn 
and if you would know me 
look into the entrails of Uranus   
where the restless oceans pound. 

I do not dwell 
within my birth nor my divinities   
who am ageless and half-grown   
and still seeking 
my sisters 
witches in Dahomey 
wear me inside their coiled cloths   
as our mother did 
mourning. 

I have been woman 
for a long time 
beware my smile 
I am treacherous with old magic   
and the noon's new fury 
with all your wide futures   
promised 
I am 
woman 
and not white.

Brian Oldham — Untitled

Los Angeles, USA


Brian Oldham is a 23-year-old fine art photographer and visual artist hailing from Southern California.

In his own words: “My passion for creating blossomed at a young age as I experimented with self-portraiture and taught myself how to create freely. I make art to replace the words I cannot fathom; each thread holding a love for all things strange and beautiful. I strive to bring life to quiet whispers at the back of my mind, to make whole the ghosts of my experiences.”

Brian is currently living and working near the Los Angeles area and is available for commissioned work internationally. Needless to say, we love Brian’s work.
