Sayaka Takasaki honours nature’s sublime character in a new series of Japanese landscape photographs. She writes, “Faced with the overwhelming beauty of nature in front of me, I had nothing to say but thank you – to give thanks is a prayer, as well as a point of entry into the ocean of silence.” Recommended by Fumio Nanjo, director of the Mori Art Museum, this book offers perspectives on the many things an ocean can be: an expanse of weathered snow, an obscuring layer of mist, the gulf of air between craggy peaks, a swathe of mountain grasses, or an endless field of scattered rocks. Masterfully photographed, the silences of these landscapes are palpable.
