The chapter discusses the aspects of ekphrases of iconic (world famous) photographs. Using Arnold Van Gennep’s study into the rites of passage, it describes this sort of ekphrasis as one that entails certain rites of passage into visual culture. The poets examined are Sharon Olds, Kate Daniels, Louis de Paor and Ernesto Cardenal.
