Cinema (cover)

c2013 Helen Reynolds
I loved working on the cover image for a new book of poems, Cinema, by Helen Rickerby.
Publisher Makaro Press has describes the book:
The poems in Helen Rickerby's Cinema look at the personal through the lenes of a camera and the world of cinema through the unfiltered eye. Meet the boy who learns to kiss from action movies, the girl made up of symbols and the director with the aesthetic of a sniper on the roof.
The fascinating part of doing the research for this image was looking at the changing gaze of women with powerful positions in the film industry - startlingly direct and challenging in the seventies, composed in the nineties and currently tending towards indirect and turned inward.

Fancy your own quality print of this? Jump over to Pledgeme and offer a donation (you might need to email the publisher - the address is at the bottom of the page). Lots of other lovely things to choose from there too.
