Her Portraiture – Timothy Ormond (2009)
“Now never should you blame her for these rocks, though they lodged inside my temple for some time” (from “Goliath”)
Through a kaleidoscope of portraits, Timothy Ormond’s debut collection Her Portraiture delves into a deeply personal and yet aesthetically mythological reflection on the diverse roles that the feminine has played in his life. From reminisces on early childhood to love poems and a celebration of his newborn daughter, Her Portraiture is a lens not only into the emotional depth of Timothy Ormond’s heart but in the uniquely lyric melody of his voice.
Her Portraiture was nominated for Best English Book at Expozine 2010.
