Message from Takashi Amano:

In massive seasonal wind and snow, the spiritual image of the giant tree, skews and spreads its arms on the ground and bows its branches to the full extent is almost like incarnations of nature itself. The Cedar tree of Sado has been keeping the primitive nature as it is and graving the history of natural changes to its own body. The island floating on the Japan Sea is perhaps the only place in the world has a number of such deformed trees. The exhibition features a touch of quiet forest with the memories of thousands of living creatures created through surviving the severe environment obscurely, captured with extra-large film cameras in minute details. In fact, this is a work of ecological landscape photograph.
