In this first published collection, Peter Dechert makes a statement that deserves and rewards study. Composing his poems in many forms, he matches form to content with unexpected and striking results. His book is the essence of a lifetime of thought-provoking productivity. Although not widely known as a poet, Dr. Dechert served for several years as president of the then-nascent New Mexico Poetry Society and some of his poems have been published over the years in magazines and anthologies. Peter Dechert earned his doctorate in English Literature in 1955, and is probably best known for his five books and many articles on photographic subjects, especially the historical development of varying makes of cameras. For more than ten years he wrote monthly articles about cameras for "Shutterbug Magazine." Also an active professional photographer for many years, he has been named an honorary life member of the American Society of Media Photographers.
