Well, the deed is done, INFINITE THREADS is now a reality, although actually getting the book here from the UK in anything like sensible quantities has proved an expensive nightmare. Thank you Brexit! But you can buy it on-line at http://www.infinitethreadsbook.com and if you happen to live in SW France you can get a copy by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have about 40 left! I’ve also ordered some bookmarks featuring the INFINITE THREADS cover etching and they should be available FREE to all of you lucky people who buy a copy of the book.
Infinite Threads is a collaboration between photographer Chris Collister and Newcastle poet Jeff Price. This collection of poetry and photographs represents a dialogue between their two art forms. Chris provided Jeff with a number of his photographs and Jeff wrote poems inspired by the images.
Jeff says “I have always been a fan of Chris’s work since I first saw some of his photographs in an exhibition 10 years ago in the South West of France. He sees the everyday in highly imaginative ways and I felt there was something poetic about his images which I wanted to capture.”
The result is twenty nine stunning images and poetry inspired by them. Sometimes like the photographs the poetry is almost dreamlike and other times it reflects the humour often found in Chris’s images.
