Poet Photographer Collaboration

What the Guardian describes as the first of a series of collaborations between poets and photographers, poet Sarah Maguire and photographer Martin Argles present an illustrated performance of Sarah's poem, 'My Father's Piano'. The poem is from her most recent collection "The Pomegranates of Kandahar" (2007), which was shortlisted for the 2007 T. S. Eliot Prize.

Text of the poem here.

Isn't that gorgeous? I love looking inside things and this poem brought back childhood memories: both parents played. It skipped me, but my son plays now - the only eleven year old I know who plays jazz...
