ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Lorraine Healy is an award-winning Argentinean poet who has been published extensively. Nominated for a Pushcart in 2004, she has a M.F.A from the New England College and a post-MFA from Antioch University Los Angeles. She is the first poet to have received a green card solely on the merits of her work. The 2009 winner of the Patricia Libby First Book Award, her book “The Habit of Buenos Aires” was published by Tebot Bach in 2010. Her new collection, “Mostly Luck”, is forthcoming from Tebot Bach in 2014. “Abraham’s Voices,” her newest chapbook has just been published by WorldEnoughWriters. As a photographer, she has been shooting plastic cameras, primarily the traditional Holgas S and N, since 2002. She describes these cheap, idiosyncratic cameras as the perfect vehicle for her way of seeing the world. Lorraine was the winner of the Street Photography 1st Prize of the Holgapalooza 2009 contest, and has been featured in the Krappy Kamera, Holga Out of the Box, Plastic Fantastic, Somerville Toy Show, and Toyed With Plastic contests and shows. She has long made her home in an island on Puget Sound, Washington.
