The High Window Resident Artist: S.A. Leavesley: Photo-poems: Winter 2018

S.A. Leavesley: Photo-poems – visual art and poetry collaboration for a high-tech age

Having previously published some of S.A. Leavsley’s photo poems in a supplementary feature October 23, 2018, we are now pleased to announce that she will be our resident artist for 2019.

Not Watching the Clock – Poetry Pauses combines snapshots from a busy day with haiku-inspired elements of personal observation or reflection. The aim of these pauses is to open up a space of peace or creativity – for me as the photographer-writer and for the reader-viewer experiencing them later. They can be experienced separately, but I’ve also tried to include threads, motifs and links between them so that they also work together as a whole that’s greater than its individual parts.
