“Light is hard— / We are all hardened by it, but perhaps not so beautifully / As Niépce’s pewter plate.”

During the Unseen Book Market, Virginie Bobin (former Witte de With Assistant Curator and WdW Review managing editor) read American poet Quinn Latimer’s poetic speculation on Nicéphore Niepce’s first ever recorded photograph from WdW Review’s Image section. Virginie’s image reading was part of an image-inspired story session in which Feiko Beckers (Dutch visual artist) and Marcel Feil (Foam) did an image reading as well.
