'Eric Weeks' photographs are as epigrammatic and open-ended as a good short story: each suggests a moment out of a larger narrative that continues to unfold. The protagonist of all of them is the same beautiful, dark-haired woman, who also happens to be Weeks' wife, Stacy. But Stacy takes on many guises: here, a siren in red (Guinevere); there, a prim figure in a cornflower-blue prairie dress, near a weathered farmhouse (Pike County); and there again, sitting in a car, lost in thought, nails polished and hands folded demurely (Georgia). In With Me Soon, our protagonist waits alone at a snowy train station in a dark coat and fur hat. Because by now, she has become our protagonist, a metaphor for meanings of our conjuring. And yet. There is something elusive about her, something that has to do with the connection between the photographer and his muse.'-From the introduction by Jean Dykstra
