Home > Winners > #104030


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bamboo Forest

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Fine Art Photography

INSPIRATION:
Modern photo artists like Hiroshi Sugimoto and Andreas Gursky inspire the designer so much. However old Japanese artists like Hokusai, Hasegawa Tohaku, Zyakuchu, Ogata Korin etc. also inspire him a lot.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
For the past few years the designer has produced the works in the motif of bamboo, which can be associated with Japan. In the project, he is trying to seize the reason why bamboo images strongly associates with Japan.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The designer has visited many places of beautiful bamboo forests in Japan. He has also visited several night festivals at which bamboo forests are illuminated. Actually, there are so many bamboos in Japan, however most are too dense or not trimmed by human, and such bamboo forests are not suitable for his works.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2016 in Kyoto and finished in December 2018 in Kamakura.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Photography and Photo Manipulation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The designer thinks the distinctive characteristics of bamboo are even more attractive in monochrome images using the modern techniques of photography. At first he takes color photos, and develops them to monochrome images with photoshop and other sophisticated tools. For development he uses Dell 8K monitor to express delicate touch and light & shade.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Print size / A3 (297mm X 420mm)

TAGS:
bamboo, B&W, japan, oriental, monochrome, kyoto, asia, zen, cool, relax, suibokuga

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The shots from bottom to top is suitable for expression of dignitiy of baoboo forests, while the designer found that the position of each bamboo is very important for the beauty of works. He found the cyanotype tone suits the atmosphere of the bamboo forests most, and they look like contemporary Suibokuga.

CHALLENGE:
Bamboo itself is very common in Japan, however it is not easy to extract the Japanese beauty from the common motif and create different types of works. The designer has been trying to get close image to old Japanese paintings and Suibokuga (Japanese ink painting) by creative methods.
