Fine art photographers Patrick O’Brien and Cyd Peroni will attend the Southwest Festival of the Written Word to talk about the 18-month collaboration that became “Geology of Spirit,” an interdisciplinary exhibition combining poetry and photography. They’ll provide candid insights into how they found the two award-winning poets (Rosemarie Dombrowski and Lois Roma-Deeley) and how their relationships changed over time.
For anyone thinking about undertaking a collaboration of visual and written arts, the pair will reveal not only their inspirations, but the decisions that ultimately created a cohesive body of work. They’ll cover:
- Developing and refining the overall theme
- Considering space and audience interaction
- Creating a strong presence for the poems
- Navigating four individual personalities and visions
