Über diesen Titel


When photographer and teacher Stephen Brigidi traveled to Pompeii for the first time, he was captivated by the luminous frescoes of angels on the decayed walls of the ancient city. Here, long after the destruction by Vesuvius in 79 A.D., the angels remain, timeless and transcendent. Brigidi returned many times to photograph the angels and the crumbling walls around them. Working with his photographs of the angels, Brigidi began to feel that "the poetry of the angels could be best communicated when combined with the response of another artist who perceived the angel's message." That other artist was Robert Bly, whose powerful poems, both old and new, allowed the marriage of words and pictures to happen. This dialogue between photographer and poet is at the heart of ANGELS OF POMPEII, a wondrous meditation on men and the angels who guide them.
