– Haïku from Basho

Bashō, the famously bohemian traveler through seventeenth-century Japan, is a poet attuned to the natural world as well as humble human doings; “Piles of quilts/ snow on distant mountains/ I watch both,” he writes.
His work captures both the profound loneliness of one observing mind and the broad-ranging joy he finds in our connections to the larger community.
This famous haiku from Bashō forms the pivotal theme of Paul Cupido’s new book. “I aim to engage with the world with wide-open senses. My work is about the magic moments of life as well as its inconveniences… Through photography, I learned to see and accept the true beauty of the essence of life.” – Paul Cupido

The book, through its images and design, functions as an ode to nature and cycles: changing colors throughout from green to to yellow to white to blue.
