Through A Glass Darkly.

Darkly 1

“Through A Glass Darkly”: The phrase may be better known for its biblical roots (First Corinthians, Chapter 13) or even Sheridan LeFanu’s deliberate misquote for the title of his 1872 gothic horror story collection In A Glass Darkly, which included Carmilla.

Here the phrase is used for a particularly dark series with Natalia Vodianova as a sometimes sultry and sometimes disheveled femme fatale, shot by master fashion photographer Paolo Roversi for Vogue UK in 2002.
