B&H Photo in New York advertised a photo contest in their latest newsletter. The theme was poetography; creating an image containing a poem that has a relation to the actual image. It’s not as easy as it sounds (especially if one’s wholly poem knowledge is “There once was a man from Nantucket…). The soldier in this image is part of the African American Civil War Memorial in Washington, DC. I took photos of statue and assembled this piece using Photoshop.
