Poetry. Yes, poetry. It isn’t often that I get the opportunity to indulge in my love for poetry in a book review. This collection Hold Still Please is a lushly produced and beautifully cohesive collection of poems that are highlighted and enhanced with beautifully artistic and sensual figure study photographs in close range, shot in black and white. The poems that Tina Huerta has penned and placed in this book are evocative and intimate, deepest thoughts and personal revelations placed with lyrical care. From early and tentative, to a woman coming into her own, through loss and gain, promises filled and those forgotten, it is a lovely journey of exploration: dissecting one element and focusing until settled then moving to the next. Here is where the brilliance of the photos stands out – as each poem is focused on one key element, setting it to rest as it were, the photograph will, with careful posing, bring your eye to one single element as focus, and then it is on to the next. It is a uniquely effective combination of the arts to the benefit of both forms. A beautiful introduction to the author’s work, with poems that have the ability to speak to many people, in all phases of life, I received a paper copy of the book from the author for purpose of honest review in the Indies Rock promotion at I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
