Ota-jinjya Shrine(North ward, Kyoto City) is place about 500m from Kamigamo-jinjya Shrine. Rabbit Ear Iris is full blooming at that time and that is in Ota-no-sawa swamp is designated as a Natural Monument of Ota-jinjya Shrine. They say that this place was used for motif of the famous picture "Rabbit Ear Iris" of Korin Ogata. I arrive at the morning for shoot under the beautiful sunlight. Always, there is no one, but this time there were over 10 people for shooting. Usually, Rabbit Ear Iris has 3 flower buds of each bunches, it had been blooming the 2nd or 3rd flower bud. If there were nearby, they can defloration when it was ended. But maybe there is some reason why what cannot. You can watch the beautiful green at that season.
I am interested in documenting and introducing the world to traditional Japanese culture. My main motif are the Japanese traditional festival and the environment. The characteristic of my works are simplification of the subject, exaggerated perspective, the color control with a feature, and that is to use as reference the characteristics of Ukiyo-e and I have named to "Digital Ukiyo-e(Registered trademark)". I began photographing at the age of 13 and belongs to The Photographic Society of Japan.
