“One day, one of my good friends sent me a postcard with a photo of beautiful mountains. It was so picturesque that more I looked at the photo, more it started to look unreal, to the point that my brain started to register it as a two dimensional drawing.
The idea of a photograph, which is meant to capture the 3D aspects of the world, is perceived as something two dimensional interested me. After many trials and errors, I succeeded in capturing the spirit of a mountain using just a single piece of silver paper.
This series is actually not about the mountains at all. My focus is on things beyond what eyes can see, but what the heart feells when looking at those photographs. Much like the philosophy of traditional ink wash paintings of East Asia (or Sumi-e), this series is created to convey the soul of a mountain and its surroundings with as little elements as possible.“
