William Artt-- Selected Works 2002-2009: A series of photographs on my haiku


"A thin fog
hides the wintry moon
rising slowly."

These lines taken from a poem entitled Fog: Some Haiku by R.K. Singh are the main inspiration for the ‘Shroud’ series of works. The photographs were taken on a cold winters evening in the forest situated near my home in Belfast. The fog which descends regularly within the area allowed the opportunity to create a series of work that aim to freeze both time and space.
While attracting the minimum of attention the works allow us to also contemplate our own being and mortality.


Thanks William Artt for using my haiku to go with your wonderful photographs entitled "Shroud".
