Selena Kimball, collages.

 

 

 

Selena Kimball, born in Maine, lives in New York.

 

 

 

I like the collage very much; I’m a bit sorry for the old Dore’s book though; his illustrations are wonderful.

“Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura
che la diritta via era smarrita.”
(grazie Frannyy!)

(“Midway upon the journey of our life
I found myself within a forest dark,
For the straightforward pathway had been lost.” -translation: Longfellow.).
