Shizenkan is a Japanese word that translates to "one's own perspective on nature". I have photographed in Japan since my first visit in 2004. These images illustrate my self-discovery as a photographer and are a celebration of introspection. Over time, I've found myself focusing on small and subtle moments and have come to view said moments as symbols of morality in Japanese culture. I identify deeply with the level of respect that nature commands there, as well as the mesmerizing attention to detail prevalent within Japanese life. This honoring of the natural world is indicative of a certain way of thinking; a collective consciousness that goes beyond simply caring for plants or animals or taking pride in one's work. It is a way of life in Japan, and the way I want to live.
