I am "Hakone", a framed photograph. I didn't pose. I wasn’t even aware of the camera.
We especially like how abstract the figure presents itself in the image. It is a quiet moment, almost private in nature but still a bit revealing and solemn. The image captures a profoundly mysterious grace that can be considered unique to the Japanese experience.
This piece is part of a photography series produced in collaboration with Matthew Johnson exclusively for Nalata Nalata. The image was captured in Japan with 35mm film and printed in limited editions of 5 using a silver gelatin print process. Each edition is hand signed and numbered by Matthew Johnson.
