Plan B

Plan B is a collaboration with the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon published by Enitharmon Press. Here there is an uncanny relationship between word and photographs, one which has more to do with evocation than description.

“I’ve been a fan of the photographer Norman McBeath since I met him first in Oxford. He has that rare ability to allow nothing, least of all himself, to come between the subject of a photograph and the perceiver. That holds true of a sheep or a statue of Apollo in transit: the medium does not impose a sense of mediation. There is, rather, an invitation to meditate. The very idea of a ‘subject’ soon begins to seem crudely inappropriate.” Paul Muldoon
