The first book of my Ekphrastic Collection, Rumi in Manhattan, was published and is now available on Amazon and Barns and Noble website.
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 andscholar 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.
