For National Poetry Month, Academy Chancellor Alberto Ríos is collaborating with Arizona State University (ASU) Now photographers Charlie Leight and Deanna Dent to create “visual sonnets." The project, whose name takes inspiration from the number of lines found in a sonnet, features fourteen photographs and poems.

Of the ekphrastic project Ríos says: “The best idea of collaboration suggests two or more people working not in service to each other, but to the idea they envision, differently.” 

The Visual Sonnet can be viewed on the @asunow Instagam account and on ASU News.
