Birds 'n Words: a poetryinmotion exhibition curated by Ruth Arnison

1 - 31 July 2021

Dunedin Public Libraries are proud to be hosting an exhibition of photographs and poetry. Photographer Simone Jackson's photos inspired Jenny Powell and Kay McKenzie Cooke to create poetic responses.


Simone Jackson is a professional photographer specializing in weddings, natural light portraiture, commercial and fine art nature. She owns and operates her commercial window cleaning business, but is happiest capturing the creative beauty of the Otago Peninsula.


Kay McKenzie Cooke is a Dunedin poet who cannot stop herself writing poems about birds. She has had four books of poetry published and one novel, all of which at some point refer to birds.


Jenny Powell has written seven individual and two collaborative collections of poems.

She enjoys performing and has written two multi-media collaborative performance pieces. Her latest collection of poems, Meeting Rita, will be published by Cold Hub Press in 2021.
