Hokkaido

Hillside Fence, Study 5, Teshikaga, Hokkaido, Japan, 2004 (Michael Kenna)

“… The job of photography is not to produce decoration for other peoples walls and homes. It’s a real voyage of discovery, and I think it’s an authentic way to go through life. It’s a way of discovering things, finding things, experiencing things …”

Just watched this beautiful film of Michael Kenna making photographs in Hokkaido, Japan. Landscape isn’t really my thing, but I love Kenna’s work. With the cold wintry weather upon us, and the January blues just around the corner, take a look at this film, then pull out the old camera and get into an early morning landscape for some photo therapy!

Also great snow, I wish we’d get some in real life! 😉
