    Greetings!

    I saw a wonderful exhibit in the Berkshires at the Williams College Museum of Art called "The Moon is Broken - Photography From Poetry, Poetry From Photography". Here's a bit about the show: (ten) regional poets create lyrical arrangements of (five) photographs selected from the museum's collection and write original poems to explore the poetry of the visual.

    I was blown away by the creativity of the participating poets and the collection of photographs. Among the fifty photographs I counted nine from Aaron Siskind; at least two from Callahan, Kertesz, Man Ray, Bravo, Gibson, Doisneau, Winogrand, Friedlander; and one from Smith, Bullock, and Steiglitz.

    The exhibit runs until July 8, 2007. FMI: www.wcma.org .
    Enjoy!
