In Smell the Smoke, Tori Gesualdo writes a collection of poetry that simultaneously bookends her previous forays into poetry and establishes her writing career anew. Paired with several stunning black & white photographs from Esmer Kazvinova, Gesualdo’s poems give shape to the ethereal space between life and death, between lovemaking and heartbreaking, between the past and now. Like a playful wisp of smoke, the poems and photographs in this book fill the reader’s head with visions that vanish leaving only the smell of ash behind.
Bundle includes a black and white 11″ x 17″ risograph print by artist Esmer Kazvinova. This is the original photography used for the cover of Smell the Smoke.
Both are printed in Los Angeles.
