"Learn to be... Learn to see... To experience the magic of the moment"
“Haiga: The Art of Photography and Haiku with Barry Allen and Nika (Jim Force)”
Historically from 1600 Haiga is a style of Japanese painting that incorporates the aesthetics of Haiku. Haiga are typically painted by haiku poets and accompanied by a haiku poem. Like the poetic form it accompanied, haiga was based on simple, yet often profound, observations of the everyday world. A modern interpretation of Haiga involves a poetic response that combines a photographic image with a Haiku in which the Haiku deepens the experience of viewing the photograph.

All levels of photographers and writers wanting to engage in the art form of Haiga are welcome.
