They say that Nanzen-ji Temple (Kyoto) has the highest formality of all Japanese temples belonging to the Zen sect and Nanzen-in Temple is the birthplace of Nanzen-ji Temple.
The garden created by Muso Soseki (1275-1351) features a circular promenade centered around Sogen-chi Pond. Seasonal view of natural landscape and reflections of Sogen-chi Pond from the circular promenade is very beautiful.
I began photographing at the age of 13 and have continued for over 40 years. I belong to The Photographic Society of Japan.
My main motifs are the Japanese traditional festivals and the environment. The main theme of t he works of traditional festival is “Artistic character of the festival”. I express the Japanese traditional artistic character through the intangible cultural asset. The main theme of the works of environmental art is “Color of the season”. I express the change about the season based on ecological knowledge and use the impressive Japanese coloring.
The characteristic of my works is simplification of the subject, exaggerated perspective, the color control with a feature, and that is to use as reference the characteristics from Ukiyo-e and
I have named it “Digital Ukiyo-e (Registered trademark of Japan)”.
Nowadays, I use to print on the Sekishu Washi that is a handmade Japanese Paper that is UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.
