Lenore Horowitz pairs her photographs of majestic California oaks with her simply direct poems about ordinary human experience — as a mother, daughter, wife, friend, writer. The poems explore personal growth, change, and healing, and the images embody the grace and endurance of the strong rooted trees whose branches dance in winter winds and burst into bud in spring.
For poet and photographer, Lenore Horowitz, the natural world often takes passionate form in her lens, and provides metaphors for her simply clear poems about the ordinary experiences we share as mothers and fathers, children, friends, lovers, and artists. Poem and photograph become a dynamic pair, reflecting each other, complementing each other, sometimes challenging each other. Lenore publishes her work online at womencandoit,com, as well as in her artist's books. Lenore lives in Atherton California and enjoys traveling, particularly in past several years, to Myanmar. She loves photographing children.
