Robert Perkins

Those people who read the Comments on my blog will know that there are occasional, very well informed comments by Robert Perkins, a documentary film-maker based in New Hampshire and otherwise unknown to me.   But he is now in London for his exhibition at Benjamin Spademan’s bookshop (normally closed), just by the back entrance to the London Library.   The exhibition is of a project which he has undertaken ever since he was at Harvard, studying under Elizabeth Bishop, in which he invites poets he admires to write out a fragment of their work which he then illustrates – or responds to – freely and intuitively, producing works which combine word and image.   The catalogue describes the project and his encounters with a wide range of mainly east coast poets, how they responded to his project and he to them.
