While walking along a mountain stream, I imagine the absence of words to describe this vista. As if to confirm the existence of what we see before us, I collect proof; objects which visualizes its existence while also being part of it.
Through this act of collecting and rendering an image, I then attempt to replace that image. In turn, this seems to sharpen the significance of the mountain stream.
Born in Nagano Prefecture
Travel and forest walks lead to photography and video
I travel regularly and create artworks with forests and nature as my subject matter.
The theme is about the importance of listening to the low to high pitched sounds
coming from the forest and the importance of knowing the nature we are breathing.
I felt that other than the subject being portrayed, the feelings of the photographer were also being shown in the picture.
