Ronnie Brown, winner of the The People's Political Poetry contest and the Sandburg-Livesay prize, turns her attention in this first book of poetry in many years to the story of a middle-aged woman who begins to study the family photo album in search of evidence that will tell her where she came from and who she has become. What she learns is that as much truth lies in those spaces that fall '...between one white border and the next...' as in the black and white snapshots she had always seen as a true record of her past. Using photographs as a jumping off point, Brown manages in Photographic Evidence, her third collection, to draw readers into a world that just might be their own.
The work is connected by a strong narrative thread, and is written using conversational cadence in a style that is clear and direct. She focuses on age-old issues of family, sex, death and on the misrepresentation of truth as seen through the eye of the camera lens.
