  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    In many rural areas in Japan, the legends of invisible life forms of the forests are still handed down. I took to the road to meet the spirit of forest. Carrying my camera, I enter the forests and with enough exposure I can see the sprits of forest. The spirits decides the time of photographic exposure. They talk to me, “Use more exposure,” “Do more shooting.” To my surprise, I can’t feel the color of them. In the deep deep forests, the color fades away gradually. To see the spirits, there is no way other than an accidental encounter. The weather shouldn’t be good mist or fog is better.The forests should be deeper, and darker. Walking in silence is the best.
