Creative Partnership

A couple of friends from my alma mater, Carnegie Mellon, have collaborated together on a book. “STREET: Poems by Jim Daniels/ Photographs by Charlee Brodsky” is their first work together. The book has received nice reviews.
Stuart Dybek said the book "reflects a natural interplay between the documentary and lyrical that is a solo, signature quality in Jim Daniels' work."
Alan Trachtenberg wrote:
"Jim Daniels’ poems in conversation with Charlee Brodsky’s photographs make for a remarkable collective work… This is a street that goes nowhere in particular, not a thoroughfare but a place to see and be seen, an invention that just might keep this world from sliding into utter inconsequence."
