Palettes of Light began with Michele’s desire to add an extra dimension to her photography. As a long-time fan of poetry, she reached out to Meg to propose a collaboration. In an early conversation, Meg said she found herself drawn to both Michele’s floral close-ups and the high-energy luminous abstracts. On a second look, Michele suggested that the sharp focus of one balanced the abstract nature of the other, and that they could be paired by color, form, and feeling. Such a pairing lends each photograph more layers, like a soundtrack under a compelling piece of dialogue. Intrigued by the idea, Meg offered to write a poem for each pair which could apply to both at once, but which would read a little differently depending on the image the reader preferred. Thus Palettes of Light was born.
