The roots of the word "photography" mean to "write with light." In Contact Sheet, David M. Frye uses words as the lights and shadows that describe the fine-grain details of the ordinary world. This work, his first collection of poetry, reflects his posture as a poet and photographer, a Pennsylvania native who lives in Nebraska, and a lifelong traveler of the pathways between the analytical and creative realms.

"David Frye's Contact Sheet brings a much needed heart to contemporary poetry. It's a relief and revelation to read a poet so open to the teachings found in the quietest of moments. These poems brighten this planet like 'a pair of ... steely eyes shining in the dark.'"

-Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author of Lucky Fish
