About

"An experiment with the hand-held photograph and a little animation, using stills by Jack Smith and from girlie magazines. Based on the Thomas Dekker stanza: 'Beauty is but a flower/which wrinkles will devour/ death fall from the air/ dust hath closed Helen's eye/ I am sick, I must die/ Lord have mercy on us." R.P.
