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
A text section about aging in Japan, in addition to the three main sections is also available through the menu on the right side of the pages.
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.
