Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture, Japan. Rainy season.
After much anticipation, the ever hotter spring has finally turned to rainy season, creating a cool respite from the heat & humidity that has been intensifying throughout the month. The rice fields have transformed from their dank winter tones, into lush vivid greens. With this, comes the orchestral chirping of hundreds of frogs that have settled into the water-filled paddies to breed. There is an abundance of birds taking advantage of the new plants and fresh tadpoles in the fields, although the cuckoo I hear cooing still remains to be spotted.
Spring is a stimulating time, so recently I’ve been refreshing projects that I had paused throughout the long winter. I’m also exploring some new ideas, involving some time lapse and video work, which I hope to share with you soon.
