“By the end of the twentieth century, the tide of nocturnes had long since ebbed, and darkness itself became cliche. I think it was the poet Mark Strand who warned his fellow poets that ‘darkness’ was ‘used up,’ no longer a viable word for serious writers. But darkness is still an operation and even a temptation for contemporary painters and photographers.” James Elkins
