Stories of Japan - 日本の物語

A series of digital prints and films intended to transport the viewer into another world. A kind of portal, a window portraying a transient, stimulating environment showing the 'seen and unseen' of a country that is so different to others I have visited. The ambiguity of many of the prints punctuated with the 'recognisable' creates its own narrative and visual poetry, and through the employment of sequential imagery reflects a direct influence of film. 'Stories of Japan' is a journey that encompasses many diverse elements, incorporating all aspects of a tradition and culture that is so absorbing and invigorating.
