by steve d. dalachinsky and Sig Bang Schmidt
This is the first of ten images we’ll be featuring from an unpublished manuscript by dalachinsky and Schmidt called Flying Home. steve writes:
Sig is a German painter. He altered WWI photos and i poemed along to the image. There are 55 of ’em in total. As far as process goes, it’s like call and response. Sig sent his altered photos and i looked and shot, so to speak. Based on his titles and the images i went really on a mental cutup and spontaneous reaction in most cases too.
Qarrtsiluni (2005-2013) was a groundbreaking online literary magazine, one of the first to fully exploit blog software. Though we never quite realized our dream of creating a print-on-demand option for each issue, being online does mean that our back issues remain accessible indefinitely, so there's that. And we published some damn fine stuff — check it out.
