These images, by seven D.C. poets, are downloaded from their Facebook posts or, in one case, an iphone. Some are ironic, some contemplative, and most are surprisingly beautiful. Some are from found sources (Facebook is about sharing, not just “authoring”- as is, arguably, some of these poets’ writing). The exhibition does not propose specific correlations between their pictures and their writing; however, these poets seem equally adept at using both words and pictures to note what is remarkable/strange/ funny/ironic/or just pretty amazing. The exhibition was conceived specifically for the nano gallery, which leads to the theater where DCAC hosts the monthly “In Your Ear” reading series in which all of these poets regularly participate.
