When Flowers Fall

When Flowers Fall is structured around a Haiku poem and is the result of Jennifer Loomis's journey to Japan to document the plight of the aging.

The Japanese characters at left (known as kanji), represent stanzas of the Haiku as well as sections of the presentation. When they appear in the corner of an image, rolling your mouse over the character will reveal caption information.

The author would like to thank the supporters of the project, which included The University of Missouri, Kodak, The Overseas Press Club and the Tokyo Foreign Corrrespondent's Club.

The images in this presentation are available for publication through Aurora&Quanta Productions.
