Welcome to PhotoVoltaicPoetry
poems ~ photographs ~ videos ~ music ~ essais – through a green lens
I am a poet and photographer passionate about art and the natural world, ecological understanding and nearly everything else, since everything, absolutely everything, connects.
Winner of the Bellingen Community Arts Council Members’ Art Prize for photography, Sept 17
Title: Remediation – Photography Didn’t Kill Painting
My exhibition of poetry, photography and video: First Light – From Eos to Helios, Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery finished Aug 12th.
The show included video, photographs, poetry, a book, an essay on Eos and poetry exercises to get people involved.
The idea of this exhibition was not primarily a display of art, but to give visitors a sense of the experience of Eos and encourage them to get out and experience Eos for themselves.
To quote Bruce Lee from Enter the Dragon and the Shurangama Sutra: ‘It is like a finger, pointing a way to the moon . . . Don’t concentrate on the finger, or you will miss all that heavenly glory!’

Meanwhile another refugee dies in our care. Paul Bongiorno gave an impassioned account of the government’s duplicity – especially in the light of the leaked telephone conversation between our Prime Minister and the US President. Hear Paul here.

I live on the Mid North Coast of NSW beside a forest by the sea, after 30 years in the heart of Sydney.
a small Jagun poem
a haiku might grasp momentarily
the essence of incoming spring
but I’ve just made a photograph
of winter light
graphic on burnt Blackbutt
and stuffed my pockets
with Senna seeds
