When photographer & teacher Stephen Brigidi traveled to Pompeii for the first time, he was captivated by the luminous frescoes of angels on the decayed walls of the ancient city, which wasdestroyed by volcanic eruption in 79 A.D. He returned many times to photograph the angels & the crumbling walls around them. Brigidi began to feel that the poetry of the angels could be best communicated when combined with the response ofanother artist who perceived the angels message. That other artist was Robert Bly, whose powerful poems, both old & new, allowed the marriage of words & pictures to happen. Full-color photos.
