A video with a reading by the poet Denise Duhamel that uses my photographs. Denise Duhamel’s newest collection of poems is Blowout, University of Pittsburgh Press 2013.
I have been reading Denise Duhamel’s poetry for over ten years. The first collection I read was Kinky. I love the quirky humor in her poems that lends itself to more serious social and cultural issues. She has an amazing collage piece about 9-11 in her collection, Two by Two. It is one of the very best pieces of writing I have read on the subject. Her poetry is accessible yet experimental, innovative, and enjoyable to read.
