Poetry and photography both have the special ability to capture the essence of moments in time, as seen with particularly keen eyes. Such acute and personal vision generally does not develop before the late teenage years, when our personalities are fully differentiated. Thus the simplicity and immediacy of childhood - free of prejudice and artifice - rarely finds its poetic voice.
A gifted young poet from the San Francisco Bay area, Matyas Tamas is an exception to this rule. in "Pebbles in the Surf," words and pictures open a door into this youthful world, evoking with remarkable clarity our own time of innocence. Before the age of "we see what we look for," there is an age of "we see what we see." After reading this book, one is left wondering if perception starts to fade just as expression blossoms.
