Portrait as Poets

Eyewear always likes a bit of text with its photography - and poetry most especially.

The superb photographer Madeleine Waller has obliged, by assembling, as part of a special project, many of the UK's leading poets, her portraits alongside (actually superimposed above as well) handwritten or signed poems by the authors. The layering and the colour are striking.

The project is now up on the website http://www.madwaller.co.uk/ under colour/poets. Touch the corners of the book pages to make them turn.

I'm honoured, may I add, to be in such illustrious company.
