Rumi in Manhattan is an ekphrastic collection of poetry and photography presented in a bilingual format of English and Persian. The poetries are from Rumi, a thirteenth-century Persian mystic and scholar who has influenced the world of mysticism profoundly. The ekphrasis of photography presented in this book can be considered as poetic photos or a set of pictured poetries. The book is an ethereal path from photography to poetry via diving into the ocean of Rumi's words.
