Ashley Loth has been writing poems since she was a child. The Richmond-based artist is well known for her photography at Sound Snap Photography. She's working to put her words out there alongside her images. The Tragicly Poetic is a developing series of poetry and imagery. The poetry ranges from poems written in adolescence to present time. The first book in this series is set for release in October 2018 titled “My Goodbye Letter to You." This first project has been in the works for more than five years. It features more than 150 men and women from ages 18-70 photographed by Loth over the course of five years.
