Publisher description
First published as a smaller artist anthology: Wind blown cloud ([Edinburgh : Morning Star ; Newcastle-upon-Tyne : Baltic, 2002).
Includes index of poems.
"Alec Finlay began collecting photographs of clouds in 1999, inspired by the seventeenth-century Japanese poet Basho's The road to the far north, with its beautiful description of being 'drawn like a wind blown cloud' on a wandering spring journey. These poetic and stunning images were collected from people all over the world--Gwangju, Punta del Este, Kinloch Rannoch--from photographers young and old, experienced and amateur. Here are huffs of white cloud, storm masses, bold sunsets, reflections, and skyscapes, complemented by a selection of classical Japanese and western haiku."--Dust jacket.
