Simon Taylor’s responses to Scott Thurston’s Internal Rhyme

In 2007, in the space of two weeks, Simon Taylor responded to Scott Thurston’s Matchbox N0. 9, Internal Rhyme, shooting around 12 films. These were then edited down to 150 negatives which became 150 unique gifts in  Matchbox No. 9.  Matchbox No.9 was just a sample of the collection Internal Rhyme which will be available in 2011 from Shearsman. Other parts of the poem have been published over the last couple of years in various magazines. The links below are to:
