The most glorious point and the final point in the life of a sunflower. Removing the color, I tried to convey the texture and maybe the scent of summer and the universal emotions these two points can evoke.

Amateur photographer based in Tokyo, using artistic photography to explore universal patterns in nature. Visualizing structures and forms that transcend species, time and physical reality helps me interrogate transiency and permanence, frailness and robustness, and find fundamental beauty in everyday life.
