A Crater Lake #001 from the series of ”Unfinished Topography / Collection”, 2015
Print size: 22 x 32 cm including white border
“This work is part of a series made in Japan between 2011 and 2015, the starting point for which was the idea that ‘photographs begin with catastrophe’. In this region, when the surface of Lake Caldera becomes hazy, it is thought to signal a forthcoming eruption.
Japanese people constantly navigate and co-exist with the mysterious unpredictability of nature. Currently, the reality we face forbids us from travelling to places we could once visit effortlessly. That is why we recognise that imagining far-away lands and sending thoughts to our neighbours is of crucial importance.”
