Photos of poetry in action Ferney Coy is an artist from the U.S. state of Georgia who believes photography to be a way to inhabit the world. He uses his camera as a witness, documenting a poetic action that takes place in a concrete space and time. Coy’s work relates characters to objects. He often builds scenes and subjects himself, such as a house made of styrofoam, or uses objects strategically in a setting. The resulting photographs inspire viewers to find emotions and metaphors that illuminate various aspects of human experiences. He hopes his photos encourage positivity and love.
