POET AND PHOTOGRAPHER

The product of six years of reflection and documentation, Vital Signs takes us on a walk through one of California’s largest cities: San Bernardino—generally presented in the media as a center of urban blight and high crime. In this passionate collaboration, poet Juan Delgado and photographer Thomas McGovern celebrate the working-class Latino communities of the Inland Empire and the intensity of their stories. Pairing Delgado’s piercing poems with McGovern’s photos of hand-painted signs and murals, Vital Signs preserves the narrative and visual culture of the urban landscape and reveals a community rich in emotion and vernacular art. -Heyday Books
