As the old adage goes: A picture is worth three lines of a Japanese poem. Did we get that wrong? Not this time! JOY is an exhibition of street and travel photographs by maridontreks, paired with haiku — short three-lined seldom-rhyming traditional Japanese poetry — on the essence of joy in humanity, all specially crafted by Wordsmiths of Kuching.
Have a look at the world from the perspectives of Marina and Donald Tan, collectively known as maridontreks — photographers, avid travellers and intrepid explorers. Wordsmiths of Kuching is a group of storytellers, performance poets, spoken word artists and those interested in bringing their page to the stage.
