Poetry. Photography. MY THIN-SKINNED WANDERING embraces image, language and texture through poetry and photography. It is a powerful invitation for the reader to become more than a reader of poems—to engage with transparency, the literary fragment and the image in such a way that the book becomes felt-experience, both physically and emotionally. The poems are a testament to what is born of loss, to the abiding natural world, and to embracing the intensity of longing so that the door can be opened to what mystery reveals. In the words of the poet, "this dim notion of life's myriad details matters."
A poet, photographer and book maker, Piper Leigh sees poetry as a conversatio—listening and giving voice to the weave of story, community and land. She publishes limited edition artist books of poetry and photography; participates in collaborative projects; creates installations utilizing different forms...cloth, scrolls, transparent kimonos, suspended mobiles. As founder of Comunica, she designs interactive workshops to help leaders and teams communicate, collaborate and innovate, and inspires courageous creativity to build a culture of connection in our world.
