tokyo skytree at 643metres

*shot on 35mm kodak tmax black and white film. you get the beautiful film grain

ontoshiki is a literal translation of the photographer’s Chinese name to Japanese.

the artist was raised in Australia and currently lives in Tokyo, Japan where he creates his artwork.

admires the Japanese aesthetics of Yūgen (a profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe… and the sad beauty of human suffering) and Wabi-sabi (transcience i.e. imperfect, incomplete, impermanent) such as fading autumn leaves, falling sakura petals and flawed beauty.
