Writing about James Goodwin's 'claytown' for the Edinburgh Review

..I'm reminded of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky's large-scale industrial landscapes: mines, nickel tailings, quarries, ship-breakings, container ports...

...today's tasks then, were and are as follows: finish the Goodwin review; a phone call with Polly Clark about speech, poetic voice and identity; apply for membership of PVG Scheme and get public liability insurance for my upcoming project (news of this to follow); finish off another four limpets. And with the wind having dropped a bit, collect another swatch of seggies (iris leaf) to make a thick, new rope...

a typical sort of day...

Hi Jen,
Why have I never heard of Edward Burtynsky? I am ashamed of myself! I swoon before these wonderful photographs! Thank you!!
