Writer and photographer JC Bouchard’s debut collection pairs photographs taken around Toronto, his home city, with direct, earnest and graceful poems. If you love introspection, walking around with no specific destination, getting lost and letting your mind roam free, this book will be your companion.
“In these poems and photographs, JC Bouchard is searching for a place in what can seem like an empty universe.”
-a.m. kozak, editor of 30 under 30: an anthology of Canadian millennial poets
“This is poetry grounded in the body, if the body is grounded in nothing.”
-Jessica Bebenek, author of Fourth Walk
