Life and Beyond
Poems and Appropriations
Life and Beyond is a collaboration between the prize-winning film director Jonah L. Salander, who is responsible for the beautiful and profound photographs in this volume, and his father, the artist and poet Lawrence Salander. This book is the result of Jonah Salander’s habit of walking the streets of New York City , where for various reasons—including his love for the city and his profound regard and empathy for the people who live there, and as a tool for his work as a film director—he photographs those vignettes he discovers. These photographs inspired the photographer’s father Lawrence to write the accompanying poems. Lawrence Salander is also the author of Art as I See It, published by Austin Macauley in 2019.
