My name is Arthur Gibson.

I photograph "common things" that I find as I walk around the city streets, parks and water ways of Columbus and Cincinnati; a fallen leaf, splattered paint, light fixtures, a gentleman at a local fair, an empty diner.

Then I look at these photographs later and find revealed some uncommon beauty in them, and I write a haiku inspired by that beauty. The haiku speak of love, connection and the beauty of the human condition.

Together the photograph and haiku present something to be considered, and the hope that we will realize that we have much more in common with each other than not, and have the opportunity to create uncommon beauty working with each other.
