For the rare chance to photograph Japan’s beautiful plum trees bloom, most of us would have to travel hundreds, thousands, and maybe tens of thousands of kilometers. Hidenobu Suzuki, on the other hand, needs to walk outside his door to get inspiration.
Hidenobu, a beautician by trade, spends his leisure time photographing landscapes: “My images are like Japanese artworks.” According to the photographer, landscape photography is a popular way for Japanese people to convey their emotions and spiritual sentiments.
“Emotional art cures individuals and guides society to peace,” he says of his photography philosophy. I set myself the goal of capturing emotions with my photography.”
