"Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" is a masterful homage to Steven's poem of the same name. But even more so, the marriage of Leavitt's images to the poem is absolutely brilliant. Each photo corresponds to a line within the literary accompaniment, and the two artistic elements work together to create that "third profound image."
Leavitt's black-and-white imagery is punctuated by a sole color photograph intersecting a very specific portion of the poem. The images are printed as quadtones -- with a single CMYK image -- all in 400-line screening for optimum resolution in print. Jonathan Leavitt oversaw all editing and was on press during production.
Read the accompanying interview with Jonathan to gain a deeper appreciation for the photographer and the work.
