literature (in all its forms) and the photographic image. The articles can
take the form of single-author studies, movement studies, as well as
literary, philosophical, and textual explorations. The articles can
also explore the intersections between the visual and verbal forms,

fine-art, images and written identity, photographers and writers,
modernism and memories, and the links between photographic techniques and
literary experimentation.
