Haiku Master Gabriel Rosenstock works with American master photographer Ron Rosenstock (no relation) to produce images and haiku or haiku-like aphoristic text which they call photo-haiga.
Haiku “owes its impact and inspiration to a meditative flash
in which the experiencer of the haiku moment
merges suddenly with perceived phenomena.”
– Gabriel Rosenstock
a gcuid rún
á nochtadh ag crainn
don tsúil dhúisithe
revealing their secrets to
the awakened eye
ba dhóigh leat go leagfadh
grág préacháin é
the caw of a rook
could flatten it
|an domhan so ar snámh –
this floating world
in an embrace
|éin cheoil ní chloisid
ná an muaisin –
songbirds they hear not
nor the muezzin –
(Children’s cemetery, Morocco)

Through photography I have sought to explore the space between the finite and the infinite.
For me, infrared photography is on the borderline,
the veil between the known and the unknown …
a search for what is beyond the doorway of perception.
What draws me—what speaks to me—is the mystery.
