Peter’s New Book: The Purpose of Things

In The Purpose of Things, poet Peter Serchuk and photographer Pieter de Koninck pair fresh language and images to create a landscape of new possibilities filled with insight and humor.

“Peter Serchuk and Pieter de Koninck connect word with image throughout The Purpose of Things in a way that creates a distinctive link between the two art forms. The verbal and visual combinations in this volume are stunningly intriguing and ultimately inspiring.”

 – Edward Byrne, Poet, photographer and Editor of the Valparaiso Poetry Review
