Featured Artist:micklyn FROM BLOEMFONTEIN, SOUTH AFRICA
Freckles by micklyn
Welcome to edition two of The Palette, where we will be featuring the work of Micklyn Le Feuvre. Micklyn's work and style is varied, but it can all be characterised as having a certain fresh faced innocence. There is also an underlying strength to her work. Not the strength of force or power, but the strength that comes from a woman who has learned the value and joy of life and who despite the tribulations that come our way manages to keep her heart from growing disillusioned and stagnant. Her portraits are particularly poignant as she manages to capture that elusive connection that we all seek as photographers, and so this will be the focus of our feature today.. Enjoy.
A DOZEN GEMS
Safety in Numbers by Georgie Hart
“There’s safety in numbers,” he said to me, but I don’t think he really meant it. If he had, why would he be sitting on a bench in the deserted street at midnight, left foot tucked up under him in an ungainly parody of the stumpy wood duck at the park?
I don’t think the old man in the supermarket believes it either, walking around absentmindedly, oblivious to his gaping fly. He’ll buy the two packets of chips for two dollars, and feed five hundred calories to the appetite that demanded two hundred and fifty.
HeartBreak by TheCandle
all my tomorrows are bruised blind
my charcoal boat moves slowly
on obsidian seas
My heart beat searches Silence loudly,
punctuating the emptiness with even less
Just me and this dumb engine
drifting without the light of moon
I imagine I move forward
I strain each stroke of oar to force my breath
fixed steadfast on that season
this boat that burnt so brightly
Now sinks beneath all nights.
