dent and undead
There is a dam called Miboro Dam in the mountainous area of Gifu Prefecture.
Built during a period of high economic growth, this dam releases 330 million cubic meters of stored water every year from mid-March to the end of May, producing a huge amount of electrical energy that supports people's lives. However, once this dam was built, the village sank to the bottom of the lake, and the people sacrificed their lives.
When the water is released, traces of life that were dormant in the water emerge vividly.
The ghost of a dead tree casting a shadow on what little remains of the water surface reflects the state of modern humans at the mercy of energy cycles. The inside of the empty dam was like a microcosm of a world that is repeatedly destroyed and then revived.

Gazing at a place is fundamental. A place that becomes a scene. This group of photographs, which encourages a stance of not expressing one's point of view but letting the eye think, is also a guide to exploring new means of documentation.
