Every now and again, one is lucky enough to come across a work of art that supersedes the mental plane. Even its mere existence can feel like a breakthrough or a shifting of the emotional landscape that connects us all together. Amy Campbell Pratt’s SORT is that kind of art. It’s a collection of photography, prose, and pure presence that presents as a causal stream of events which occurred outside of space and time. It’s nothing short of a cosmic transmission triggered by grace and manifested from the smoldering embers of human suffering. Each page is an epiphany that melts like a puzzle piece into the fabric of consciousness. Amy Campbell Pratt is not just a visionary, she’s a storyteller from another realm. Look closely and you might just see a glimpse of your own soul.
—Cat Farrar, Change Doula
"Amy has done a fantastic job of balancing humor, curiosity and deep introspection in this book. The introduction alone had me in tears. Amy has a way of reaching out to touch your heart saying "it's okay to ask yourself the hard questions, it's okay if you don't know the answers yet." The poems in the book are paired with fantastic images and they flow right into each other. She takes you on a ride of personal discovery while inviting you to do the same. Even the heavy themes seem to be so gently placed for the reader to uncover what they need for their own healing." Shane Manier, Poet- Founder Guerrilla Poets
"This book is a beautiful piece of art. The photography, the layout, the mood of the book are so gorgeous that it's almost hard to look away from the pictures to read the poetry." - Dr. Shontelle MacQueen
About the Book
Speaking of Radial Tires: Sorting Out a Purpose Through the Random Chaos of Life is a stunning journey through codependency, suicidal ideologies and forgiveness. The juxtaposition of the photography works to draw the reader in even more, making you wonder what the author was thinking when grouping them in this “random” way. The raw prose in SORT gives you an intimate glimpse into depression and mania, along with the tactics one uses to avoid the pain at all costs. In the world of self discovery, this book brings you face to face with some serious inner demons, confronts shame and is filled with beautiful imagery.
"The real purpose of our life’s journey is shedding the self-imposed shame and loving you that is you, shadows and all." Amy Campbell Pratt
