Alan Bern: See/Something New

"... I capture moments, sometimes with the camera on my phone, sometimes with a few words, and sometimes with both... I regularly walk in my neighborhood where I have lived for 95% of my life. And, yes, it’s often awfully familiar, but there is always something new to see."

About the Author: Retired children’s librarian Alan Bern is a published/exhibited photographer and cofounder with artist/printer Robert Woods of the press/publisher Lines & Faces, Alan brings into his writing, publishing, and photography his love for, and obsessions with, Italia, where he lived in the mid-1960s. At Boston University in the early 1970s, he worked closely with the classicist, Donald Carne-Ross, both translating and producing ‘imitations’ of diverse works. Recent awards include: honorable mention for Littoral Press Poetry Prize (2021); flash fiction finalist for Ekphrastic Sex (2021). Alan photographs, and from his work with Lines & Faces, he combines his photos and words, now a vital part of his daily art practice, photo-haiga.* It is clear that Alan favors both hybridity and complex collaboration: he performs with dancer/choreographer Lucinda Weaver and with musicians and light artists as PACES and also with musicians from Composing Together. Alan has published three books of poetry. Recent photo work: Feral; Unearthed; and Mercurius.
