Justin Coombes, Halcyon Song


You can read my now slightly retrospective interview with artist Justin Coombes on The Flaneur now. Justin Coombes’ work with ekphrasis in photography is particularly interesting to me coming from a background in English Literature. The narrative in his works, and that combination of photographs and sonnets, are all an exploration of the relationship between words and images and the relationship between these two complimentary languages in the arts. Coombes is definitely a scholar and the deep-thought of his answers says it all!
