Negative of a Group Photograph brings together three decades of poems by the leading Iranian poet Azita Ghahreman. Born in Mashhad in 1962 and based in Sweden since 2006, Ghahreman is the author of five highly acclaimed collections. Her poems are lyrical and intimate, addressing themes of loss, exile and female desire, as well as the changing face of her country. Negative of a Group Photograph runs the gamut of Ghahreman's experience: from her childhood in the Khorasan region of south-eastern Iran to her exile to Sweden, from Iran's book-burning years and the war in Iraq to her unexpected encounters with love. The poems in this illuminating collection are brought to life in English by the poet Maura Dooley, working in collaboration with Elhum Shakerifar. Farsi-English dual language edition

Review:
Negative of a Group Photograph... is an elusive, wily kind of animal. Nevertheless, it's a joy to engage with, and has this reader wanting to return to it again and again. --Dzifa Benson, Modern Poetry in Translation

This is a rich selection of poems from five books written over the last 40 years by the Iranian poet Azita Ghahreman, and translated into English by Maura Dooley with the help of the filmmaker Ellum Shakerifar. The close collaboration of these three women has yielded a collection of power and beauty, suffused with yearning, on a personal and a political level. --Janice Dempsey, Write Out Loud [on Negative of a Group Photograph]

The Poetry Translation Centre gives the best contemporary poems from Africa, Asia and Latin America a new life in the English language, working with diaspora communities for whom poetry is of great importance. By fostering creative collaborations between poets and translators, the PTC produces high-quality translations that extend the audience for international poetry. --The Poetry Translation Centre

In 2013 she was a recipient of Swedish PEN's Prince Wilhelm Award. Russian and Ukrainian translations of her poems were awarded the Udmurtia Russian Academy's Ludvig Nobel Prize in 2014. She was born in Mashhad in 1962 and has lived and worked in Sweden since 2006. Her pamphlet, Poems, was published by the Poetry Translation Centre in 2012.
