Essences PhotoPoem Exhibit

Essences, inspired by Nature’s beauty and grace, are Maryam’s poetic responses to Akiba’s photographs. In the spirit of this “call and response” project, we invite you to write a story, poem, draw, or create a collage, etc. to continue this conversation. Please leave your creative offerings in the floral box if you wish to share them with others. Below is the video created by Keith Spiro, documentary photographer, in which Akiba & Maryam offer a glimpse of their PhotoPoems and their passion for the artistic creation of community. Find an article and show review HERE.


Akiba and I wish to whole heartedly extend our thanks to Keith Spiro for sharing his expertise in creating a touching video, article and series of photographs documenting the Essences PhotoPoem Exhibit! Keith is a one of a kind, community spirited human being who is passionate about following his calling to serve communities throughout the world as a Business Strategist, Community builder. Akiba and I feel richly blessed by his use of multiple media to spread the word about the Essences PhotoPoem Exhibit’s intention to inspire artistic responses through the integration of photos & poems.
