Phil Bergerson

Quite frankly, Phil Bergerson‘s Shards of America blew my mind!

You can buy the book Shards of America, here, for the ridiculous price of $25.

Also, don’t miss the great interview with Bergerson via MakingRoom.

Shards of America is a personal view of America, a poetic statement full of irony and pathos. It is an extended sequence constructed from fragmentary messages that encapsulate what I, as a Canadian, see and feel about America. The messages I have found and collected are those left behind by an exuberant, somewhat troubled, rushing humanity as it makes its way through the streets of a tumultuous America at the turn of the century.
