Title: Beyond Illusions
The beauty of the hanami lies in the equation of the inherent aesthetics of Japanese cherry trees and the different tones of the petals. This harmonious ensemble reaches its climax during the “full bloom”, which lasts only a few days.
“Beyond Illusions” explores the end of the hanami, the ephemeral nature of the event and the fragility of the petals once they have flown away. This end gives rise to a new scenery that removes all traces of the earth’s surface to create a unique spatial environment.
The photos were taken in Tokyo during the hanami 2019.
