Center for Creative Photography

The Center for Creative Photography and the Poetry Center at the University of Arizona are delighted to exhibit a captivating project by B.A. Van Sise in a celebration of the bicentennial of Walt Whitman’s birth that showcases portraits of poets. We are proud to present Matthew Zapruder, who will read from his work at the Center for Creative Photography. After the reading, there will be a short Q&A and a book signing.

Matthew Zapruder’s most recent book is Why Poetry (Ecco, 2017), an impassioned call for a return to reading poetry, which the New York Times Book Review called “a roaring success.” His new collection, Father's Day, will be published by Copper Canyon in Sept. 2019.
