This year I am booked for three exhibitions of my Haiku photography. The first one is in April and time flies. I need to create 12 new ones and I just finished 5. So 4 more to go. The fifth is a triptych (Earth, Wind and Fire) with 4 haikus:

I am seen by name

Several things dance to beat

Warn; Gargoyles here



Hovering over

fathomless waters dark, deep

earth awakes from sleep



Windy afternoon

the Gargoyle confronts both;

angel and devil



The whirling spirits

try to fire the gargoyle

disappear in air

The Haiku photo’s of the triptych are printed on Fuji 300 gsm paper (A2 size). The others will all be printed on rice paper in A4 size and framed (with passe partout) in A3 sized frames for which I made an own design and looking now for a frame maker who likes a challenge.

The four that are ready:

The Haikus that go with these:

  Haiku Africa

Whispering winds
The ancestors voices
The Soul of Africa


Little more than

pulsing emulsion

the man fighting himself


Blue Stream glistening

Hiding in the deep valley

Where I know I’m safe


Slow song sweeltly sung

she sways gently. wishing for

his tender embrace

  1. Wow, Herman!! Such a vibrant imagination you have. I love it!!
    Where are the exhibitions, and when? I’d love to see large-scale copies of your photos. But if I can’t get there, I say – fly, boy!!!!
