Elegy for Moss Land by Clarence John Laughlin (1946-7)

Clarence John Laughlin (1905 – 1985) was an American photographer.
His first aspiration was to be a writer and he wrote many poems and stories in the style of French symbolism.
He began working as a freelance architectural photographer, then worked for various magazines and one of these was Vogue. After a conflict with then-editor Edward Steichen he split from Vogue and then he worked on personal projects full of elements of Surrealism.
