Prairie Fire must be thrilled
...with Mandy Malazdrewich's photographs in "Home Place: The Poets of Winnipeg" in the latest issue (Vol. 28 No. 1). They're fantastic. Forty poets, forty photographs. I haven't read any of the poems yet, but I've had a good look at the faces. Ariel Gordon, a friend and fellow blogger, looking radiant in her gorgeous office. The stunning photos of Mariianne Mays and Lindsey Wiebe, poets I met a couple years back. The playful photo of David Streit, arms crossed, having a staring contest with a cat. The whites of his eyes, the white cat. Amazing. Then there's the one of Ken Kowal, perhaps the best photograph of the lot. Or the one that best marks Malazdrewich as an artist.
