The creative act of the explorer involves recognition, seeing via what we have already seen. Poet Denise Levertov says organic poetry, “is a method of apperception, i.e., of recognizing what we perceive.... Such a poetry is exploratory.”

MaryLynne Wrye's Journey is the poetic and photographic document of a trip that became a journey, both into memory and into mystery. This is an allegory for every journey, a practice of recognition, but also a witness to the transformation that must result. Every explorer must return changed.

MaryLynne Wrye was born in Kabul, Afghanistan and resides in New York. She earned her MFA from University College London. Wrye was awarded the Patty Smith Poetry Prize from Stanford University upon graduating with a BA in English Literature and Poetry.
