Dog Tag Poetry
A 365 photography and haiku project...
by Bonnie J. Schupp
About the Book
Each day I randomly picked a dog tag with a word on it. The challenge was to write a haiku and illustrate it with a photo containing the tag itself. Some worked better than others but I did this every day, even when on the road. I was forced to think outside the box with words like "karma."

Among many others, she has won numerous awards and juried acceptances including Kodak International Snapshot Awards, Baltimore Museum of Art, Women in Photography International, the Bodine Contest and the Kinsey Institute. Her latest exhibit, Defining Ourselves, is a two-year project involving people ages 4 - 100 from fifteen countries who have defined themselves in one sentence beginning with "I am." Bonnie then took portraits to illustrate their definitions. She has been involved with Baltimore art projects including the Baltimore Love Project and Inside Out Baltimore. Her husband and two grown daughters have supported her passion, sometimes by modeling for her stock images sold here: http://istockphoto.com/eyejoy
