Title: Yin-yang

About the Photo:
Yin is characterized as an inward energy that is feminine, still, dark, and negative. On the other hand, yang is characterized as outward energy, masculine, hot, bright, and positive.
The two opposites of yin and yang attract and complement each other. Yin elements can contain certain parts of yang, and yang can have some components of yin.
These works are composed of the illuminated bamboo forest image and its B&W reversed image which is inspired by ink-wash painting, Suiboku-ga.
