Lost & Found


Lost & Found melds two art forms (photography and poetry) to create emotional scenarios that a reader can appreciate on two levels. It explores the very relevant and affecting themes of feeling lost from the beginning of life through childhood and youth, getting through a divorce, and about finally finding oneself and love towards life.


The collection contains 38 stunning black and white art photographs combined with poignant poems to shape a synergy between words and images. Evocative, profound and beautiful, Lost & Found reshapes our awareness of how we think about poetry.

I really enjoyed reading this collection of poetry and photography, each piece of work complimented the other perfectly!

by Rhonda Lomazow

A beautiful collection of poetry paired with stunning photography. I really enjoyed this unique collection, and will be on the lookout for more photography x poetry style books.

I have received a much appreciated digital copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

by Cassandra Wojick (via Netgalley)

Hauntingly beautiful juxtaposition between the black & white photos and short poems about life, loss, and finding oneself. I enjoyed both the photos, and the poems equally. I didn't really feel a connection between a photo and its poem, though. Equal, yet very different. The poems were all free verse poems, one or two stanzas. Overall, a lovely collection. Perfect as a coffee table book, or for poetry lovers.

by J. Aislynn d'Merricksson

I found this to be incredibly thought povoking and moving during reading. The images matched perfectly and created a mood for the poetry. Very intimate and very emotional.
