archatlas: Japanese Landscape Photography In the words of the artist Hidenobu Suzuki: My photographs are like Japanese paintings. I think that realism is more Western style. Japanese like to express emotions and spiritual feelings through the landscape photography. Contemporary theater, art and music stimulate the brain and increase mood.
