PROJECTOR POETRY: a Night of Photography and Prose
by Co-Curators Jackie Orozco & Mieke Zuiderweg
As the title suggests this is a one night event combining photography and poetry. The work will be on either be projected digitally or on 35mm slides using an old school projector. Poems will be read by a variety of participants.
The selection of photographs will be re-visited work, new work, or part of a personal collection and in-process portfolio of each photographer. This event will be a contemporary take on an old fashioned slideshow night with talented photographers and poets. The images, poetry and libations will keep us warm helping us to forget these cold winter nights!
