From the Series // Japan, 2009

This monk was on a long, walking meditation through the streets of Kyoto. One carful step, delicately peeling and sticking from heel to toe and then when planted firmly on both feet, he would singularly ring a tiny, brass bell. Was like watching life in slow motion as the world passed him in double time.
 


This bamboo forest holds a quiet respite and was the ultimate 'forest bath' I've ever experienced. I spent multiple trips to Kyoto photographing this place until I could capture enough to illustrate the feeling of it.
 
Created while on a three month journey throughout Japan, finding luxurious dollops of nature and following the blossoming of the Sakura [cherry blossoms].
