The concept of vision, I was born in a spiritual journey. Continuing from 2016 this series, For me, I discovered that the act of "photograph" is the same as thinking about Zen. We went to remote areas of Japan and places that no one knew and taken them. The tranquility of the lake in the early morning was the purification of the human spirit and the vivid red felt like as if it was blood. End of the trip, sensation of the skin, natural life and death, and share that moment.
