Santa Fe 2023 Portfolio Review 2) Primeval Forest at Mt. Amagi


Primeval Forest at Mt. Amagi

Exploring the providence of nature I often shoot primeval forest

at Mt. Amagi in the Izu Peninsula in Japan.

Trees in the primeval forest have lived for several hundred years independent of human society.

Various plants live in harmony and transcend themselves to the next generation  through the circle of transmigration, so-called metempsychosis.  

We, humankind, face crisis of the Earth as a result of our expansive activity.  By observing the providence of nature in the primeval forest at Mt. Amagi we can learn what to do for our survival.

It suggests that the balanced way of life would be necessary for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
