Photos and haiku: Who does this well?

In my Haiku Society of America column this month, I talk about my son’s first poems — poems that he “wrote” at 2 and 3 years old. One of them was inspired by Patricia Donegan’s book, Haiku.


The other small poem was paired with a photo. I know that there is a rich tradition of combining haiku with photos. Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can learn about artists who do this well?

Thank you!

  1. Dear Gene, I enjoyed your column and your son’s first poems! As a former teacher, I can well imagine how excellent haiku would be in helping children learn to read.

    About haiku and photos: there’s a lot of interesting and excellent art in the Haiga WordPress tag.

    Thank you,
