"Tiefenausdehunug" is the word Hildebrand talks about in his book. Literally translated, it means "representation of depth". When humans capture space, depth is an important factor. I aimed to rediscover "depth" in the landscape of Japan. Interrelationship between faces make people feel the depth. For that reason, I thought that a bridge composed of many members was suitable as a subject. The bridge leads us to the back of the landscape. By expressing in monochrome using daytime long time exposure technique, I eliminate useless elements and focus on the theme of "depth of landscape".

I am a graduate student majoring in urban design and architectural design, 22 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.
