Portrait of Poetry

B.A. Van Sise explores photography and poetry’s relationship with the image in his show A Portrait of Poetry at the Center for Creative Photography. In 2015, Van Sise set out on a portrait project to document many of the most notable names in contemporary American poetry. The resulting images are acts of collaboration, giving a likeness of the individuals behind these poems while evoking their narratives visually. The show itself is a collaboration between the University of Arizona Poetry Center and the Center for Creative Photography, where it will be on display until November 23, 2019.
