‘Dumplings Over Flowers’ is a collaboration project by Tim Johnson and James Bigglestone. The project is an anthology of rhyming poetry, written and compiled over 2020. This project explores a range of themes. Some poems comment or respond to Japanese society and culture, both historical and modern, from the perspective of an outsider. Many explore the feelings of love, heartbreak, rejection and loneliness. 


The anthology is accompanied by a handpicked selection of James Bigglestone’s fine art
photography, in monochrome. While the poems are written in response to a new and unfamiliar culture. 


"For me, combining the poetry and photographs highlights that, wherever we are in the world, our internal feelings (and what we think about) are often the same regardless".
