THEME SUMMARY

(c)Yoshiyuki Okuyama

From ancient times, flowers have coexisted with humans, soothing people's souls with their beauty while also serving as foods, poisons, and medicines. Flowers have further come to be seen as symbols of life, spreading their roots down into the earth in their multitude of colors and forms, each expressing its own unique qualities. When the time comes, their sprouts born freely in nature and their buds raised carefully in the city will bloom to bring forth new seeds. Many artists have sought to convey their lovely forms in works depicting vibrant bouquets and supple flowers. Photographs, which can capture in a single shot the fleeting beauty of flowers that bloom but for a moment, are one such endeavor. Please try to express the countless beauties of flowers through images.
[Submission Period] from September 5 to November 9
