It’s always good to meet new and interesting people. One chap I met recently was Wes Magee, poet and children’s author who has published 6 collections of poems for adults and 90 + books for children. His poetry is rich and evocative, and often very funny.
We got chatting about poetry and I told him about the ‘Picturing Words’ sessions I run with schoolchildren, encouraging them to write haiku poems inspired by my images. Well one thing led to another and I suggested to Wes that perhaps we could combine his poems with my images.
This is my image of a red fox which Wes believes ‘perfectly complements’ his verse from The Woodland Haiku. published in 1996. We are both very keen to work on further images and verse together – so you never know what this could lead to.
