Cool Japan exploration

  • Photographer
    Kei Makise

This work was produced around Cool Japan as a concept, exploring
places where Japanese landscapes and scenes can be expressed
attractive.
Speaking of Japan, it is famous for having seasonal colors everywhere.
However, by expressing it with a monochrome photograph, I thought
that people who saw the picture wanted to imagine the actual color.
