POEM OF THE WEEK

POEM OF THE WEEK

 

This week we're showcasing One Language by Anastasia Taylor-Lind which has just been published by The Poetry Business. 
One Language is a remarkable debut collection. From the perspective of a female photojournalist, these concise but complex and insightful poems draw on first-hand experience of war to explore how damage is generated and perpetuated. The book’s title expresses the contradiction between the lingua franca of photography and the equally universal language of violence. One Language comes to an understanding of personal history and global conflict in poetry that is as immediate and evocative as the most urgent of dispatches.

Anastasia Taylor-Lind is an English/Swedish photojournalist covering issues relating to women, war and violence. She is a National Geographic Magazine photographer, a TED fellow and a 2016 Harvard Nieman fellow. She writes poems about contemporary conflicts and the experiences she cannot photograph. You can follow Anastasia's coverage of the refugee crisis from the war in Ukraine on her Instagram (@anastasiatl) and in the National Geographic. Anastasia's life and photographs were also at the centre of this National Geographic podcast on the relationship between storytelling and combat photography, and the failings of war photojournalism.
