Haiga is the ancient Japanese tradition of combining images with haiku poetry. Ron C. Moss from Tasmania is an artist, photographer and poet who practices haiga. For examples of his work see this blog

He also publishes videos of his haiga collections on Youtube such as this example about the rivers of Tasmania:

Canberra Region Feltmakers

       Lynn Petersen of the Canberra Region Feltmakes wrote to us saying she thought we might be interested in a collaborative project between Canberra Region Feltmakers and creative theatre folk (and a few photographers) from around Canberra (and beyond). The virtual exhibition, Something Quirky This Way Comes includes images and videos of imaginative felt finger puppers.

       See https://canfelt.org.au/exhibition 

       There are two parts to this online exhibition - a virtual gallery and a video playlist.

It seems that our interests in exploring connections and inspiration between different art forms align. I am hoping to revisit this project next year and launch a new series of photographs and videos featuring hand-felted puppets.
