View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Black & White Reflections is a collection of haiku poems written in 2012 and a collection of original photographs taken between 1973 and 1999. Sálongo has been writing haiku poems since 1980 and his first book of haiku and poems; Haiku Dreams Voices From My Third Eye Vol. I was published in 2010. The photographs were taken using various B&W films and film camera formats and processed by the author. Various traditional and non traditional wet darkroom techniques where used to manipulate the film negatives and create the unique images over the 40 years the author worked in film prior to switching to digital cameras in 2006. All of the images in the book except for two were scanned from the original film negatives without any Photoshop post processing for placement into the book. Two images were created in Photoshop from film negatives that had been created in the 1970's but not printed until the mid 1990's when the author began using a scanner to scan his film negatives for printing on a Epson 2200 digital photo printer that allowed him to print 13"x19 photographs. The author now prints all his image of an Epson 24" 7890 archival digital printer on any material that will go through the printer. Sálongo continues to write haiku poems on a daily basis and there will be more books of his haiku and photographs in the future.
