Description
I like stout plants which can survive, even in a severe environment. Plants like these break through concrete, and work with all their might to stay alive. Having done this, there is no way they could be anything but beautiful.

Portrait of fallen leaves

iwa-enogu(mineral pigments) on paper, gelatin silver print, vegetable dyeing
45 part, each 258 × 182 mm

Description
Unfortunately, cases of environmental destruction continue to increase. In the future we may find that parts of our environment we had taken for granted no longer exist. Fallen leaves are no exception to this. I think it's possible that we might see a day when even fallen leaves no longer exist, so I am determined to capture them in portraits. These fallen leaves do not have names, but they each have their own unique and beautiful shapes.
