In The Mist

About the Book

“In The Mist Giving Voice to Silence”

Exquisite photographs capturing Oregon’s mist-clad landscapes, urban moments and enchanting coastline illuminated by nuanced poetry from seven esteemed Oregon-based poets. Young’s images, along with their poetic responses, celebrate the ethereal wonder of the mist and the voice that emerges from silence. In The Mist binds together poetry and photography in a relationship in which one is not excluded from the other, but rather both are met and bound and emerge as a new wholeness—a wholeness seeking that which is hidden in the mist and that which is revealed: silence, memory, breath.


Renee’ Michele is a pianist/composer who was so taken by the photography of In The Mist that she composed a song for her new CD titled The Space Within. The song title is In The Mist.
