"Αγγελικό και μαύρο, φως". These words - 'light, angelic and black' - appear in Giorgos Seferis' 1946 ode to light, the final element of his long-form poem, 'Thrush'.
Like an angel's epiphany, light bears little exposition. It is the language of sense and sight. Seferis was both a poet and dedicated photographer; the two disciplines marry and meet in his work. Photography, after all, is the language of light.
