About this title


Poetry. Text and Photographs. Translated from the French by Cole Swensen. Borrowed voices, invented voices, and a very personal but unplaceable voice all wind their way through these mock-philosophical meditations on nature and cosmos. Juxtaposed with her precise and abstract photographs, Doppelt's text considers astronomy, weather, the five senses, plant life, the insect world, and the nature of time, all in an implicit dialogue with the pre-Socratics. Often funny, often wry, this book betrays an affectionate love for the world. Some pre-Socratic fragments appear translated into a phonetic language by the composer Georges Aperghis.

About the Author:

Suzanne Doppelt is a well-known French photographer who has collaborated with various other artists and writers, including Georges Aperghis, Ryoko Sekiguchi, and Anne Portugal. Director of the "Cabinet of Curiosities" series for the Parisian publisher Bayard and poetry editor for the cultural review Vacarme, she has held residencies with Inventaire-Invention, the Fondation Royaumont, and various other cultural institutions, and her photography has been in solo and group shows at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Le Centre Culturel of Bastia, L'Institut Français of Naples, Le Pavillon des Arts, L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Nîmes, New York University, the Cabinet d'Art Graphique of the Louvre, and the Galerie Martine Aboucaya in Paris. The author of 14 titles in French, her books LAZY SUZIE (Litmus Press, 2014), THE FIELD IS LETHAL (Counterpath, 2011) and RING RANG WRONG (Burning Deck, 2004) were translated by Cole Swensen.
