Love and Barley #2 - Max Guy

Love and Barley #2 takes its name from On Love and Barley: Haiku of Basho (trans. Lucien Stryk 1986, Penguin Classics) one of three anthologies published by Penguin Random House of poems by Matsuo Basho. Basho is recognised as the great master of haiku form, which he somewhere described as "Simply what is happening in this place at this moment." In this series of photos, Max Guy scans each illustration in the book, and doctors them to create continuity between pages. Each scan includes a watch, depicting the distinct sliver of time taken to scan the photo.
