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. Emotional art heal people and leads the society to harmony. I took a challenge to capture emotions with my camera. Using logical thinking at photography results in better attention to the detail, but there is a tendency to get bored. Working with feelings and looking for emotions is more relaxing. You can see previous features of Hidenobu Suzuki on ARCHalas: Sleeping Giants, Weeping Plums and Early Spring In Japan. Images via text via (via archatlas)
