Dylan Barbier

"This is going to happen again." -these lines were spoken profoundly in the series True Detective, beginning from the very time Dora's body was found, bound and naked at the base of an old oak tree.

It is with great honor we announce that we are partnering with celebrated photographer Dylan Barbier on a new collection entitled, "Dora's Tree."

Photographed with permission on private property near Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana, this limited set of images (on canvas, metal and paper) represent some of the finest images of the tree made famous by the HBO Series, True Detective.

Contraposition Volume III

The official book from
CONTRAPOSITION MAGAZINE

Is a mother someone who raises us? Are they lights on a dark road, shelters from the elements, coded transcriptions of hate and love? Is motherhood a narrative, a metaphor or an image? Perhaps this book suggests that motherhood is all of these things, a human experience that defines and is defined by all of us, so essential is our proximity to "motherness." Perhaps these works of art are part of that experience and parents to our understanding of it. Edited by Ev Malcolm, Nathan Rupp, Chelsea Renhoff and Patrick Fallon; Layout by Gary Dauphin. Cover art “Motherhood-ness” by Diana Toma. Contraposition is a digital and print-based literary magazine. This volume represents a unique selection of poetry, short stories and photography submitted by many talented contributors.

CONTRAPOSITION Volume 2

The Best Literary Journal on the Internet
Now available as Kindle eBook and Softcover Book!

This issue of Contraposition calls our notion of authorship into question. When an idea comes into the world, when we find something beautiful for the first time, we often ask: where is this from? Where can I find more? But this impulse can leave us with a sense of being robbed - when the answer is not quite what we'd hoped - or keep us from searching beyond a source that has pleased us. We'd like to suggest that the relative anonymity of most of this issue's contributors doesn't diminish the value of their work; it gives them a special kind of authority-the kind we give to a child's first words, an openness to a new surprising, beautiful, or humorous connection.

Contraposition is concerned with finding beauty and importance wherever it appears, no matter who it is that may have created it. Poetry and Fiction by various authors.

Edited by Ev Malcolm, Nathan Rupp, Chelsea Rennhoff and Patrick Fallon.

12 Tears of a Slave
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl
by Harriet Ann Jacobs

12 Tears of a Slave: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl is a slave narrative that was published in 1861 by Harriet Ann Jacobs, using the pen name "Linda Brent." This book is an in-depth chronological account of Jacobs's life as a slave, and the decisions and choices she made to gain freedom for herself and her children. It addresses the struggles and sexual abuse that young women slaves faced on the plantations, and how these struggles were harsher than what men suffered as slaves. This book is considered sentimental and written to provoke an emotional response and sympathy from the reader toward slavery in general and slave women in particular for their struggles with rape, the pressure to have sex at an early age, the selling of their children, and the treatment of female slaves by their mistresses.
