Poetry on the Plaza: The Language of Photography

This October, I had the honor once again of reading poetry at the Harry Ransom Center for their Poetry on the Plaza series. (I read for the series once before, in 2006, together with my friend Molly Schwartzburg, HRC Curator of British and American Literature.) This time I was one of three readers on the theme “The Language of Photography,” a tie-in to the current exhibition of the Gernsheim Collection. The other readers were Roy Flukinger (HRC Senior Research Curator of Photography) and prominent Texas photographer Geoff Winningham. We each read several poems by established writers, including Naomi Shihab Nye, Natasha Trethewey, and William Carlos Williams. Self-indulgently, I also read one of my own poems, “Reciprocity Failure.” Here are a couple of photos friends took for me:
