Edinburgh based photographer interested in images that express an idea. Currently the ideas I am working on are about archetypes of women, and the labels men put on them.

Allégorie

C'est une femme belle et de riche encolure,                                    Here is a woman, richly clothed and fair
Qui laisse dans son vin traîner sa chevelure.                                    Who in her wine trails her long heavy hair
Les griffes de l'amour, les poisons du tripot,                                    Love's claws, and that sharp poison that is sin
Tout glisse et tout s'émousse au granit de sa peau.                            Are dulled against the granite of her skin
Elle rit à la Mort et nargue la Débauche,                                         Death she defies; Debauch she smiles upon
Ces monstres dont la main, qui toujours gratte et fauche,                    And as their long monstrous talons every one
Dans ses jeux destructeurs a pourtant respecté                                Let her be in their all-destructive play
De ce corps ferme et droit la rude majesté.                                        Leaving her beauty for a later day.
Elle marche en déesse et repose en sultane;                                    Goddess she stands!  Sultana at her leisure
Elle a dans le plaisir la foi mahométane,                                            She shares Mohammed's faith that heaven is pleasure
Et dans ses bras ouverts, que remplissent ses seins,                          And bids all men forget the world's alarms
Elle appelle des yeux la race des humains.                                         Upon her breasts; between her open arms!
Elle croit, elle sait, cette vierge inféconde                                         She knows and she believes, this sterile maid
Et pourtant nécessaire à la marche du monde,                                    Without whom the world's onward dream would fade
Que la beauté du corps est un sublime don                                        That bodily beauty is the supreme gift
Qui de toute infamie arrache le pardon.                                             Which from every sin may the terror lift
Elle ignore l'Enfer comme le Purgatoire,                                            Hell she ignores, and Purgatory defies
Et quand l'heure viendra d'entrer dans la Nuit noire                              And when that black night shall roll before her eyes
Elle regardera la face de la Mort,                                                     She will look into Death's grim face forlorn
Ainsi qu'un nouveau-né, — sans haine et sans remords.                        Without remorse or hate; as one reborn

— Charles Baudelaire

Truly, this poem needs to be read in the French original to get the full effect of this description of this prostitute as a majestic and beautiful (even holy) Goddess, one who can play with - even cheat - death and through it all remain innocent and unencumbered by hatred or remorse, like a virgin.  

If this poem is not about what Isis calls "the whore and the holy one", I do not know what is!
