Continuing with my interest in pushing photography into the territory of other art forms, and offering a degree of visual ambiguity – another constant in my practice- this body of work presents Haiku.

Haiku 15 (Spring)

 

A Haiku is a short Japanese poem used to evoke images and typically characterized by three qualities:

1-  The juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a “cutting word” between them which colors the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

2- Set up in three phrases

3-  Containing a seasonal reference

 

Haiku 24 (Summer)

 

Haiku 29 (Summer)

 

These are Visual Haiku which follow the rules of the written ones:

1- They are composed by a top image – or first verse/idea.  A section of the bottom of this image is then reversed and attached below (second verse) acting as the “transition” or connection.  This section is reversed again and attached below (third verse) but this time it is extended or elongated offering a degree of distortion.

2- Arranged vertically with each of the three verses below one another

3- They are all landscapes so as to reflect the season

 

Haiku 36 (Autumn)

 

Haiku 40 (Autumn)

 

Haiku 49 (Autumn)

 

The works presented here are a selection of the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Haiku.  I restricted myself to the area where I live so there will be continuity between and referencing/comparison of the seasons.
