Remember when you took photos with your camera, took the film to be developed, got back 4 by 6 prints (or even smaller), and put them in albums to enjoy and share with your family and friends? You didn't take thousands, you thought about what you wanted, and they weren't on your phone! Poet, artist publisher and photographer Soheyl Dahi has recently published a series of 5 albums of 4x6 black and white photos from his collection of primarily Beat Generation people and places that evoke an earlier time. As Soheyl puts it in his introduction:My name is Soheyl Dahi and l am the publisher of Sore Dove Press. I've had the good fortune of knowing and publishing some of the poets of the Beat Generation among otherpoets. Two in particular (Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Jack Hirschman) were dear friends of mine who mentored me in publishing, writing poetry and also on how to lead an ethical life. I am forever indebted to them.Since photography is one of my three passions (the other two are art and poetry), I always had a camera with me (before the invention of cell phones). Everywhere I went I took photos, Just for myself to have a record of the events or maybe I was too aware that life is transitory and needed to be documented.On January 1, 2022 I decided to organize my photos from years and decades past. Each photo triggered a memory and located me in a time and a place with all the people that I've met along the way. Then I got to thinking that it would be a shame not to share these photographs with like-minded people. So here they are presented to you in the most economical way I could think of.I hope vou enjoy these photos and get a sense of the times we lived in.This album #II, with 46 B&W photos, signed and stamped on the colophon. Each photo can be removed from the album and has a descritive comment hand written on the back. There was originally a limited edition of 12 of each of the five sets, this #I is one of two printed out of series. We also have the other four.; Each set is in a black album, protected by a black box. All are new, acquired directly from Dahi's Sore Dove Press. Contact us for special pricing on the entire series.; B&W Photographs; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 46 pages; Signed by Photographer
