  1. I’m enjoying this series very much, Edward. Each portrait is imbued with sadness, burdened by a poetics of melancholy. I wonder if these portraits are in some kind of dialogue with Maggie Nelson’s Bluets, which ponders pain and perception and the perception of pain and the pain of perception.

    • i’m still figuring out the series as i go along, but i like what you guys say. The title of Maggie Nelson’s book was in my head when I started the series. And I wondered, could I use that word – “bluets” – as a genre marker, to help me string the pieces together, or to suggest a narrative if a narrative was lacking. And then I looked up “bluets” and saw it was a little flower. Which suggested something about the form.
