    Rich Purple Eggplant

    I have been recently working on a series of pieces from photographs taken while traveling around Sicily. Most of the photos are street or market scenes that I found interesting. I felt that this poem's illustration would allow me to explore that same situation at home rather than abroad.

    Markets are great places to get a sense of culture. I'm interested in the aesthetics of people and how they interact with each other and their environment.

    I find, in this setting, certain things that transcend political boundaries. The details change from town to town, but the big picture remains familiar. The moment I pieced together from photos taken here in Syracuse could have easily been from countless places around the world.
