Stokes, Telfer, Song of the Thrush, 1998, Weproductions, 148pp, 15 x 19 cms Offset, Ed 400. (ISBN: 0 9523284 1 0).
Song of the Thrush was conceived during Stokes's first exposure to the raw poverty on the streets of Bombay.

"I had travelled to India to be taken out of myself with nothing to lean on, no one to help, in a place I had never been to where everything was different. A great deal of what I found there had a strange familiar feel to it, which I let myself be immersed in."

Song of the Thrush develops a visual / tactile quality to express a range offeelings from humour to pathos to anger.

As a prelude, a slow introduction is made through a series of images & titles that are commentaries on each other. This in turn leads to the Song where the images words and colour become an interwoven dialogue.
