Whilst Dark Cheshire’s Under Moons

September 7, 2014 Travis Dewitz

I would like to share a glimpse of poetry by, Jose Antonio Ortiz III, that fits the confused, dark, and mysterious feel that is Alice. This is the unmitigated portrayal of my Alice series.


Dream tide writ,
Seam eye’d rip,
Gleam glide bliss,
Tea time tiss.

Aromatic sizes,
Contain erratic mires.
Whilst dark Cheshire’s under moons,
Explain glad pyres.

Grin bask griss,
Dim splash dip,
Limb cast lich,
Hymn pass brich.


Folly under pressure,
Quaking at the measure,
Heir to the strange,
Madness cup’t for pleasure.

Wynn wide rhyme,
Time clock sighs,
Doormouse blind,
Ten Six lithes.

Lost within the found,
Without stones or lakes,
Eat me,
Drink me,
Peering vision ‘scape.


Peculiar to fall,
Three inches tall,
A, E, I, O, Y.
You are never lost.

Whose shape now?
Whose tea gone?
Whence I’ve come?
Heads come off.

This the looking,
Then the past.
This the virgin,
Then the glass.

~Jose Antonio Ortiz III

I am diligent about refining, perfecting, and even obsessing over my work; it is my passion. I believe it’s important to capture youth and teen models in a way that will build their foundation so they have a lasting effect in the modeling world. A strong suite with my style of editorial work is that my images launch many models into their modeling careers. Models I have worked with have been in Vogue Italia, numerous magazines, and even pursuing their dreams in Hollywood.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
