Photography & Poetry
The photo enjoys success on its own. And so does each poem. Why, then, bring them together? Perhaps it’s the centrality of the photograph that asks for another point of view. Maybe a visual is always a question to the viewer. A poem can be an answer. Photography and poetry raise the level of sight and diction. One displays evidence; the other a response— a social notation on an act of nature. Every tree in this book has its own narrative in its presentation. Each individual poem tries to match the imagery. Both forms can be analyzed forever, but their dialogue is what this book presents.
