So There's an Island Somewhere

Torz Dallison & Tanya Shadrick

For this collaboration, photographer Torz Dallison asked author Tanya Shadrick to respond to the prompt a real utopia. So There’s An Island Somewhere is Tanya’s answer [with the written text being adapted from an original spoken-word response]. The hand printed images are Torz's visual response to the text.
