A Theory about Time and the Body




Always an Emptiness at the Core of Memory

James Owens divides his time between central Indiana and northern Ontario. Two books of his poems have been published, and his poems, translations, and photographs appear widely in literary journals. Hobbies include metaphysical disquiet and watching small objects — leaves, stray scraps of paper, the surface of a puddle — moved about by wind.

  1. Hauntingly beautiful! I love the last picture, as it is my favorite of the bunch. It says so much but in the most simple, eloquent way. I love how you were able to capture the lighting on the dress. It’s absolutely stunning. I can’t wait to see more of your work 🙂

    • Thank you! I like that one, too. It wasn’t really very hard to capture the light like this — the dress was hanging in a dark room with light slanting in through a window, pretty much just as it looks here. Sometimes, the key is just recognizing the moment when it comes 🙂

    • Thank you! I do love black and white. It seems to draw closer to the underlying structure of things that can often be hidden by color…
