Artistic collaborators imagine cities a world away

Artist Jan Senbergs and poet Chris Wallace-Crabbe have collaborated in the form of paintings and poems to create their imagined versions of six cities: Kandy, Odessa, Oran, Santo Domingo, Timbuktu and Reykjavik, places that neither of them have visited, and possibly never will.

Audio report by Buffy Gorrilla

The two artists, friends for more than 40 years, talk to Buffy Gorrilla about memories, travel and tennis.
