A Revision of Forward

“Fragmentary and experimental, impressionistic daguerrotypes of everyday life.” — Bruce Cinnamon, VUE Weekly

This project represents the culmination of a twelve-year word + image collaboration between poet Wendy McGrath and artist/University of Alberta Professor Emeritus Walter Jule. Part poetry book, part graphic exhibit at SNAP Gallery, the ephemeral black-and-white prints appear alongside a collection of 40 poems.
