On the sandy beach of the Falkland Islands, I found a king penguin about to go hunting in the evening.
Partly because it was lightly cloudy that day, the beach was dyed gray, and it was as if the penguins and the world had lost their color.
By taking pictures of such colorless penguins and beaches against the backdrop of shadowed hills, I expressed a monochrome-like world while taking color photographs.
