Ouroboros Press is offering a portfolio of Nine photographic prints of the LVX & NOX Signs as shot by occult photographer Carlos Melgoza of Anima Nocturna. The portfolio is accompanied by the rite, ‘Revelation of the Midnight Sun’ by Frater S.A.L., and is limited to 26 hand numbered sets only.
The LVX = NOX series of images were originally produced by Carlos Melgoza as silver gelatin mural prints and presented at the 1st annual Esoteric Book Conference in Seattle, Washington. The nine mural prints were displayed in the form of scrolls, likening their presentation to that of Tibetan tankas. As images representative of ritual postures, the large format lends itself to visual explication in a striking way. More than merely didactic representations of the signs, the subjects manifest the force behind the forms which the gestures are meant to embody.
Esoteric imagery is rarely made by the hands of those experienced both in the arts and ritual practices themselves, and in the case of photography the task is all the more difficult to master. Melgoza has demonstrated that in his fifteen plus years as an occult image maker that he can bring such experience through, be it via portraiture or composite representation and the LVX = NOX images do not disappoint.
