Erika Ayon was a 2009 PEN fellow in poetry. She’s completing her first chapbook, Orange Lady, drawn from her childhood memories of working with her father selling fruit out of a cart.
Check out Sylvia Sukop’s breathtaking photograph series “I forget myself (I forget you)” on her website.
Below is her artist statement about the new series:
This new series of cell phone photographs is a direct outgrowth of Chron. As in that experiment, I’ve established rules including no cropping or manipulation of the image once it’s been shot; these are direct downloads from my phone. I am especially interested in shooting in “bad light” and seeing the shifts, ghostly at times, of colors and forms that emerge.
Brava to Sylvia Sukop, Mehnaz Turner and all the Emerging Voices alumni who read at the release party for STRANGE CARGO, an Emerging Voices Anthology, at Skylight Books! Congratulations again to EV alumni whose work is included in STRANGE CARGO! MMIX Writers, Erika Ayon, John Boucher, Rachelle Cruz and Parnaz Foroutan are also featured.
