Haikai Photography

Haikai is the old Japanese poetic form that predates what we know today as Haiku. First used in 10th century Japan, Haikai was poetry that consisted of many stanzas. Over the centuries, particularly in the 18th century, Haikai poetry started to evolve and writers began to create poetic stanzas that were able to stand alone and by themselves. These individual stanzas are the Haiku as we commonly know them today.

I chose the name, "Haikai Photography" because it was old school. It reminded me of the days of where photography originally came from, back when I had shot film and even developed film. The digital sensor brought an evolution to the arena of photography - and sparked a renewed interest.
