Carin Tillman, combines poetry and photography  in “The Elms Are Tall Here”, a haunting artwork in her series “Metanoia”.

Here is the poetry from the artwork:

“The Elms are tall here. Their naked dry skeletons sway in the wind. A wind where I used to feel your fingertips (that would send me into frenzied giggles). But wind now, that I stare and watch in solemnity, wondering to myself …”Father, is that you?”

“The Elms are Tall Here” has a dark beauty all its own, and is just one of many great pieces. Visit her website here, or her portfolio site here.  Below, see Tillman’s artists statement, taken from her website.
