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.
I have been commissioned to write a poem about encounters - based on Captain Cook’s voyage up the East coast of Australia. It has ventured outwards into 27 pages. I will read extracts on Sunday 14th May, Coffs Harbour Museum.

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
