Writer & Aesthetic Realism Associate

Michael Palmer

I'm glad to include here, articles I've written showing the great value
of Aesthetic Realism in explaining matters that concern people
everywhere.  The education I write about on this website was founded by American poet, critic,  and philosopher Eli Siegel.

After hearing this talk from the series Art Answers the

"This is the greatest tribute to this photograph that's ever
been."
This talk was presented at the 24th Symposium
