(London, United Kingdom)

Fuji is approximately 70km distance from my hometown. In my hometown, it snows rarely however, the Lake Yamanaka freezes every year. In November 2016, it snowed for the first time in 54 years in my hometown. The Lake Yamanaka is the headstream of the Sagami River and it is the only lake with natural debouch into the rivers among the Five Lakes of Mount Fuji. These landscapes are simplified by snow and I also tend to express simply and minimally.

“Photo of the Day”

ニマル表現も試みています。誕生月が二月ということもあり四季の中で冬期のみ見られる現象を 前途の地域で写真に収め始めました。2016年、11月に神奈川県央部で積雪したのは54年ぶり のことでした。私の人生に於いては初めてのことで、その降雪記録も含みます。*継続中シリーズ P.4のヨットの背後に見える山、P.37∼P.39の撮影場所は「鉄砲木ノ頭」という山梨県と神奈川 県の県境を跨ぐ山です。山肌が特徴的なその山の名称は「水をせき止める頭の部分」という意 味で、かつて神奈川県側が鉄砲水の「水」を「木」と間違えて表記した名残なのだそうです。鉄砲 木ノ頭からは美しい富士山の全景が望めます。
