Love her.

Haiku. Some have said Jisei. Both and neither? For context, my work in this area was published once upon a time, only on paper and in some of the leading zines of the day. That and a US dime will of course get you a really tiny bean cake. Or, maybe not. Also, like many who dabble in the Japanese form I don't subscribe to syllables, but have no problem with those who do. Long as they don't spill tea.

Hello everyone! This is Silvia Montevecchi, aka @ssilvss, and until sunday I’ll share with you some pictures of my latest work, “Jisei no ku”, which is also a book (ed. @seipersei.books.gallery). Jisei means “the last word said before death”, “ku” refers to the poetic moment. They are short poems of the Japanese tradition expressing one last thought, a farewell to the world from poets, samurai and monks who, sensing the approach of death, wanted to write some words to leave a trace before disappearing.

The self-portraits of this project are inspired by this kind of poetry, in particular by the poems that most struck me. By reading and analyzing them I tried to focus on the sensation that they transmitted to me, to rework it and to evoke it in my photographs by creating a fantastic world, beyond time and reality, a world in which death is a moment of suspension, a step towards the unknown.
