The Poetry of Being expresses the artist's response to the fragility and perseverance of nature through photographs and haikus. Images of what was, things still hanging on, the effects of climate change, and the cycle of life make up this ever relevant monograph. The book’s quadtone printing process mimics the original photographs’ platinum palladium prints evoking a sense of beauty in their darkness and underscoring the importance of connecting with the environment to find hope in challenging times.
