Comments & Reviews:
'Incredibly beautiful, marvellous, so accurate and unexpected, and at the same time simple. Deeply impressive. I salute it.'
~ John Berger
'Reading Spatiamentum is like watching something emerge out of the consciousness of the street. It is a kind of liturgy for the permanent in the fleeting. A very impressive collection.'
~ George Szirtes
'Nothing is ordinary in his world. Again and Again he makes us look at it with his own rapt gaze through the precision of his observation and language.'
~ Matthew Francis
'I love his writing.'
~ Ronald Blythe
'A work of beauty and genius.'
~ Tamasin Day Lewis

~ Jeremy Reed
