‘Night of Four Moons’ is a reworking of an earlier book, ‘The Fountain of Tears’, which evoked the last night of the poet Frederico Garcia Lorca before his execution during the night and burial somewhere in an olive grove nearby. ‘Night of Four Moons’ uses some of the images from the earlier book but sets them over graffiti from contemporary Spain – graffiti that hints at political tensions still present over sixty years after Lorca’s death.
