. . . the name Goddess is as old as Earth. We are her children
. . . the vision of Mother as the giver of life.
     I am
      I am fire

The photographs of Cynthia MacAdams' portray the female, both in nature and as nature. These nudes, then, can be seen as transition figures. The attitude here is one of attentive waiting, of sleep, of introspection, as if woman is exploring the psychic geography of her natural mind. She returns to her mother, to the earth strength of the stoic prairie woman, to the Earth.

Margaret K. Mitchell
