Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
StAnza is the only regular festival dedicated to poetry in Scotland and is held each year in March in the historic town of St Andrews. Each festival focuses on two themes which weave around each other to give every StAnza its own unique flavour. The themes for StAnza 2012, The Image and Poetry by Degrees, have been specially selected to compliment and celebrate the 600th Anniversary of the University of St Andrews.
Focusing upon the relevance of the image in poetry, with particular emphasis on photography, The Image will celebrate St Andrews as the first town to be thoroughly documented on film. A variety of engaging readings and exhibitions linking poetry with visual art will feature, including the much anticipated, Body Bags: Simonides by Professor Robert Crawford from the School of English and photographer Norman McBeath.
