Robert Sheppard and Trev Eales: Poetry and Photography on Tentacular 3: Heather Baron Gracie and IAMDDB (hub post)

A further ‘gallery’ from the poetry-photography collaboration by Trev Eales and myself, Charms and Glitter, has been published in Tentacular 3. We’d both like to thank editor Jonathan Catherall for taking it. Access it here. Here is the link to the issue (Check Robert Hampson's take on the British Poetry Revival.)

This one is ‘Gallery 2’ and it (unusually) consists of a second image of one of our featured festival rock stars: so that IAMDDB is sandwiched between two images of Heather Baron Gracie from Pale Waves.

takes you to a post carrying a poem and photo (St Vincent this time), with links to the other two poems in the ‘Gallery 7’ to which it belongs: Debbie Harry and Patti Smith.     

These two may be found at Queen Mob's Tea House HERE.

Featured in Otoliths is ‘Gallery 3’ of Charms and Glitter, on three reggae artists: Toots Maytal, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and Jimmy Cliff. Find them HERE!

I’m pleased to say that ‘Gallery 19’ of Charms and Glitter  appears on Train (poetry journal) HERE.
You will find three photographs and marching poems featuring ‘Dancers with Arcade Fire’, ‘The Flaming Lips’ and ‘La Fura del Baus’.

I write more about our collaboration here (with links to further images/poems and to a talk that went undelivered on the relationship of my writing to photography as a social practice and art).
Charms and Glitter will be published by Knives, Forks and Spoons early 2020.  
Trev Eales is a photographer specialising in live music who lives in Cumbria. For over 20 years, beginning in the early 1990’s he photographed for WOMAD. Over the past 10 years he has contributed as a photographer and reviewer to a variety of online publications covering major UK music festivals: Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, etc. Photographs and reviews: Web with many more photos:

We met at the University of East Anglia, where we were students, in October 1974, at a Thin Lizzy concert. Sometime, a few years ago, we were sitting on the banks of a canal in Lancaster (where we meet between his home Barrow-in-Furness and my adopted home Liverpool), I suggested we ‘do something’ collaborative with our respective practices.  We did. Here are some results...

The reason there are no ‘images’ on this page? Because you only have to click above to see the latest (and the preceding) images (and poems).
