I have placed an image with each poem to add some more context. Very few of these images have anything directly to do with me: they are mostly found on other sites on the Web (such as Flickr) and copied or linked from there (where source html code has been made available).
have generally chosen images to
complement the poems and avoided realistic and figurative
though I have used some highly stylised early images (for example, from
and contemporary artwork.
I have acknowledged the creator and/or source where I have been able to identify them, and contacted the creators/owners for permission where this was explicitly required. If anyone objects to the use of their images in this way, I will of course remove them. wordsout is not-for-profit and no commercial benefit accrues to anyone from this re-use. I hope that my use of the images will introduce others to the work of the artists and photographers represented.
particular I commend the brilliant work of Brandon Robbins,
more than 20 of whose photographs I have linked from Flickr, and one of
whose images I used with permission as the cover of Prayers in Time.
