It is rare " ice rime" which is the representative of Yamagata in winter in the world.
The humidity peculiar to the basin surrounded by the mountains,, and an irregular shaped object created by cold air and strong wind. People are called "Ice monster" with a heterosomorphic appearance of the variant. The sight that the harsh environment and the irregular "IceMonster" show is also a source of primitive religious perspectives,
To the extent that it makes the view of nature religious,
Sometimes shine, be divine, even remember fear.

Kazuaki Koseki

1977 born in Yamagata, Japan.
His work is devoted to the landscape of Yamagata and Tohoku, Japan. Evoking the five senses through the four seasons, he photographs the world—weaving the mountains, the forests, and the rivers together.

This is because I became familiar with fly fishing from 20s and naturally felt awe.
This is to convey and protect the many problems that I have felt while walking in mountains, forests and rivers, such as "nature that changes due to Global warming" and "environmental problems".
