Written Portraits

I was asked to help present poems by Di Sherlock, commissioned as part of the 2016 Diep-Haven festival.

Each poem is a portrait of a member of staff at Glyndebourne, where Di had been in residence. The poems were written after a period of time working with each staff member. They were shown in Dieppe and Newhaven alongside photographic portraits by Pauline Le Pinchon, who had been in residence at Glyndebourne at the same time. Each poster was designed to reflect in some way the themes of the poem, with alternative versions created to fit the booklet layout.
The poems were later compiled into a pamphlet, in English and French.
