Note on the origin of this document: Whenever I photographed musical performers
I perceived them as poets, I fell in love with their lyrics first.
Some years ago I created this collection as a quark document, it was a labor
of love as I knew I could never get the permissions required to publish this
as a book; I hand-made two copies which were lost by people
I gave them to and the quark file was trashed accidently, so the only trace
existing of the project is one color xerox version from which these
images were copied, thus the poor quality.I will be working with award-winning
typographic designer Graham Clifford on the next itteration of this
material; the design challenge is to have the typography be so strong
and true to
the lyric that it replaces the music as a partner for the poetry.
