The Japanese Forest

One of the beginnings of Japanese religion is the “Yaoyorozu-no-kami”.
“Yaoyorozu-no-kami” is the belief that there is a god in all things in nature, and it is introduced in foreign countries as “Animism” or “Shinto”.
“Animism" is the belief that non-human creatures, still life (minerals, artifacts, etc.) and invisible things are also willing.
Shooting is similar to “Animism".
Select an object that is visible to the eye and shoot through the camera lens.
The criterion for choosing a subject is the invisible intention.
Trees, minerals, and dead grass feel the will of life, and even if an artifact like a dam is left in nature for a long time, it will feel the will of life.
Just as we see untouched nature, the future people see the current scenery.
