Izanai

"Izanai" means invitation in Japanese. In the back of this picture, you can see the tourist spots that represent Tokyo. I expressed the attractiveness that attracts people as a form. The structure behind the bridge leading to the back, the horizontally spreading buildings, the dynamically flowing clouds and the water surface. These contrasts and fusions symbolize the beauty of Japan. By expressing in monochrome using daytime long time exposure technique, I eliminate useless elements and focus on the form.

I am a graduate student majoring in urban design and architectural design, 23 years old from Hokkaido, Japan. I grew up in the vast nature of Hokkaido, cut out landscapes from my own perspective and photographed architecture and cities with a detailed examination based on expertise at university.I take photographs from urban architectural perspectives, architectural historical sites, and think of architecture from photographic perspectives.
