I come from a family steeped in photography and grew up with a darkroom in the house. I am named after the late photo-essayist Allan Sekula. His melding together of his writing and images, his critical and creative faculties, and his passions for social justice and aesthetics inform my own work. Visual art is a small but important part of my poetic and spiritual practice. Here you can see images and collaged poems.
