Haiku 365, 365 photos

This is a one year project. 365 Haiku and a brand new photo every day. Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Some of the more common practices in English include:

  • Use of three lines of up to 17 syllables;
  • Use of a season word (kigo);
  • Use of a cut or kire (or a punctuation mark) to compare two images implicitly.

Haiku’s rules are complicated and English is not my first language. The main goal of this project is to play with words and pictures and have fun. However I’ll do my best to stick to the rules.

If you like all this, follow me.
