Poetry. Photography. Like Dr. Faustus, like Don Giovanni, like Alice, Pinocchio is one of the mythic avatars of the modern mind, a scapegrace forever escaping retribution by the skin of his teeth. This unusual collaboration between poet Edwin Frank and photographer George Woodman finds Pinocchio caught in a series of unexpected, and yet familiar, entanglements, at once comic and miserable. The tricky relations between lover and beloved, theory and practice, fantasy and reality are among the matters that might be said to come up in this beautiful sequence of words and images, which offers both an exploration of photography's narrative unconscious and a prosody of the perverse. "George Woodman's provocative photographs lie at the intersection of nature and culture. These densely layered images recall the mythological, and refer to the art historical, but above all, exist in the personal present." --Adam Weinberg, Whitney Museum of American Art
