Overview

"What if gay marriage were legal in the 1800s and the most popular honeymoon spot was Japan?"

I collaged images of Japanese woodcuts created in the 1800's in full color with photographs that were taken in the 1800's of men together.

These ten images are like a set of old photographs that were taken as souvenirs of their honeymoons, and the poems let each of them tell their story.

About the Author

I started writing poetry when I was thirteen years old. To practice I would type whatever came to mind, which turned out to be adolescent rhyme. Throughout high school I enjoyed writing poems, having some published in the school literary magazine.

At the University of Buffalo I continued writing and took classes in poetry. I would often frequent coffee houses reading my verse during those college years. After graduating I moved to Florida. Though I worked various jobs to pay the rent I never gave up writing poetry.

In 1986 I joined the Poets of the Palm Beaches. In 1989 I became
President of The Poets and held that position for seventeen years. To this day I still serve on their Board of Directors. Over the past fifteen years I have organized and conducted poetry readings, workshops and classes. I have, at times, won various prizes in poetry contests

I am also a member of Artists of Palm Beach County. For the past 20 years I have been working with photography, collage and digital imaging. Many of my works have been exhibited in various public places and galleries in Palm Beach County, Florida; such as the Palm Beach International Airport, the Boynton Beach City Library, and the Armory Arts Center.
