"Learn to be... Learn to see... To experience the magic of the moment"
“An exploration of the Japanese art form of Haiga 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.
Our day will be outdoors and we will:
All levels of photographers and writers wanting to engage in the art form of Haiga are welcome.
