Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a gorgeously rich book, a seamless collaboration capturing the spiritual undercurrent that flows through the fields, woods, and towns of Indiana, and in a greater sense, around us all." —Spindrifter



"Invisible Presence is the kind of book that satisfies on two levels: it is an aesthetically pleasing collection of artfully manipulated photographs that grace the pages like impressionist works; and it is a gathering of eloquent, sometimes spare poetic meditations which enhance these visions." —Book/Mark

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
INVISIBLE PRESENCE-A WALK THROUGH INDIANA IN PHOTOGRAPHS AND POEMS is a book of sheer and visible beauty, as it partners, on every two page spread, the poetry of former Indiana Poet Laureate Norbert Krapf with the photographs of Darryl. D. Jones. As Scott Russell Sanders atates in the Foreward:

"Those of us who live in unspectacular landscapes-like Indiana, or for that matter like most of the Midwest-landscapes without mountains or canyons, without towering waterfalls or stony coastlines-may be especially prone to lose our sense of awe. Our senses grow dull, cutting us off from the radiance that surrounds us, fills us, makes us. We can be grateful to Darryl Jones and Norbert Krapf for helping us to see spiritual presence not merely in all things Hoosier but in all things."

Jones manipulates his photographs until they morph into impressionistic works of art praising both the beauty of the heartland and the Creator of such glory. He descibes in the Preface his artistic and spiritual philosphy, as well as his methods of exquisite co-creation.

I was privileged to hear Krapf read some of his poetry at an April 2011 house concert with the Monika Herzig Trio-both energetic joys to behold. During intermission I bought INVISIBLE PRESENCE and SWEET SISTER MOON (a remarkable book celebrating all things female!)and continue to re-read and savor them. After a fellow artist/poet friend recently lost a loved one, I couldn't think of anything that would comfort and encourage her more than losing herself in INVISIBLE PRESENCE, so I bought another copy on Amazon.

And if I were rich, I would buy a copy for everyone I know; it is that lovely!
