Jacqueline Suskin's "The Collected"

A couple months ago I received an email from the poet Jacqueline Suskin. She happened upon my website after reading my essay in Learning to Love You More and found a strong connection between her publication The Collected and my series The Lost Photographs.  In her book, she writes poems for found photographs that were acquired in Florida flea markets, from friends, or in the trash. She ever so kindly sent me a copy and I read it immediately upon opening. "You Are Not My Doe" draws a direct visual connection to We crossed Lake Te Anua...

My favorite piece in Jacqueline's book is "A Brown Study Market" mainly because I would like to think that I do the same:

Sometimes the internet can do wonderful things like providing an opportunity to acquaint myself someone else's work that so clearly resonates with my own. Thank you, Jacqueline, for contacting me and for the beautiful book!
