Josephine Sacabo: Lux Perpetua & Nocturnes 

Internationally acclaimed New Orleans photographer Joséphine Sacabo describes her work as subjective and introspective, but that may be an understatement. Her images hover between dreams and reality and evoke a sense of the past as a living presence. Lux Perpetua is the title of a photogravure (pictured) as well as a series inspired by Sor Juana Inez De La Cruz, a 17th century Mexican nun who was a writer and early advocate for women's rights. No less archaic in tone, Nocturnes is a series of photogravures based on the psyche of dreams. Sacabo says, 'I photograph things not as I "see' them but rather as I might have "dreamt' them. We dream in images. Through them we can forge a deeper connection between ourselves and the world." — D. Eric Bookhardt
