HAIKU POSTERS

Author John Salembier describes a haiku as "a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself; a way of looking at the physical world and seeing something deep." Working with three haikus chosen from Scales, A Collection of Tuna Haikus, I created a poster series.

I used a combination of vintage illustration, photography, and bold dividing lines to craft a composition that evokes ideas around water pollution and over-fishing.
