Shortlisted for the 2023 Nelson Ball Prize

Sixty-Seven Ontological Studies is a double-stranded book of intense lyric reflections on the fundamental essences of things. The two modes of attention—Jan Zwicky’s words and Robert V. Moody’s photographs—are presented as fully co-equal. Neither one serves as an illustration of the other, yet there are many deep connections between the two. They are brought together here in a resonant conversation, steeped in the pregnant silence of the living world.

“The characters of both poems and photographs are distilled, singular, and exquisite.” CRISPIN ELSTED

“And yes, they really are ontological studies: character sketches of reality itself: trenchant insights into what it means to be.” Franklin Cheng
